Moonwolf has ties with the Pawnee Native American Tribe. This tribe is named after their word for wolf: Pa’ni. The traditions and customs of this tribe align with the wolf spirit.
Legend has it that Tirawa, the Great Spirit, placed the wolf spirit in the sky in order to watch out for the evening star. This came along with the wolf’s animal brothers: Black Bear, Mountain Lion, and Wild-Cat. These entities were said to possess power in the sky, soon known as black star, yellow star, white star and red star. These beasts supposedly sent animals like themselves to live on earth and were responsible for many of the planet’s creations. Similarly, they were believed to be responsible for sending clouds, thunder, lightning, and wind.
The wolf spirit, said to be the guardian of and possessing ancient ties to the moon, is believed to stand as a devoted servant of the sun as well. Even now, it is said that a lone wolf sings their song to the moon, hence the name of the first moon of the year, occurring in the dead of winter.
