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.

In the legends of these tribes, Cougar sometimes features as a leader or warrior of the animal people.
