What does it mean when you dream about a Native American?

Native Americans have been romanticized to the point where they symbolize certain ideals, from attunement with the natural world to stoicism in the face of the inevitable to spiritual wisdom. Alternatively, they can represent our “savage” desires. Any of these meanings might be expressed by dreams of native tribal people.
