The watchers in the Purple Sky
I am the color of royalty and power. Kings, chiefs, and bishops have always chosen me for I am the sign of authority and wisdom. People do not question me – they listen and obey.Purple (from The Legends of Color)
Purple had special meaning to the Native Americans. It is important to know that the color purple was not used as war paint or face paint. It was seen as a sacred color and symbolized power, mystery and magic. The color of purple was produced from coneflowers, Blueberries and hibiscus and ground up into paste to draw pictures on skin for happy celebrations.
