The Native American hunter often encountered a bear, not always by choice. These experienced hunters, learning the bear was ferocious, retaliate with a vengeance. To kill the bear in a one-on-one confrontation was an accomplishment to be recognized by the entire tribe. The bear possessed the power to heal its wounds. The wound would close rapidly and bleed very little because of the dense layer of fat under the skin. It was believed this power of healing could be passed on to a chosen one in a dream or vision. - ZS Liang
