Pelicans are not very important birds to the mythology of most Native American tribes. The Nez Perce considered Pelican a medicine bird, and seeing a pelican in a dream or vision was a sign that a man had been granted spiritual power. And in some California Indian tribes, Pelican was said to have control over storms and weather.
