Meaning: Cougars play a mystical and secretive role in Native American mythology. On the West Coast, some tribes believe seeing a cougar or hearing its screams is an evil omen, and cougars are often associated with witchcraft. On the other hand, among tribes on the East Coast, cougars are considered noble animals with powerful hunting skills. In the legends of these tribes, Cougar sometimes features as a leader or warrior of the animal people.
