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 or Panther  sometimes features as a leader or warrior of the animal people. And among some tribes, Cougar is believed to have powerful hunting medicine and considered one of the six true directional guardians, associated with the north and the color yellow.
