In most Native American cultures, wolves are considered a medicine being associated with courage, strength, loyalty, and success at hunting.
Often called the "polar wolf" or "white wolf," Arctic wolves inhabit the Arctic regions of North America and Greenland. Thanks to its isolation, the Arctic wolf is not threatened by hunting and habitat destruction in the same way as its southern relatives.
