Fox — Šunğíla

The fox, šunğíla was also thought of as a medicine animal and had the power to reveal locations of herbs needed by the medicine man. The fox shared expertise on how to swiftly escape enemies. It taught men how to travel through dangerous territory and to understand courage under fire.

While the Wolf Society fought battles further from home to keep enemies away from the home village the Kit Fox Society focused more on policing around the home camp, to keep order and harmony, and they also did much of the hunting.
