Pelican people can rise to the top no matter what life throws at them;
no matter how weighed down them become with lifeís trials and tribulations.
Emotional turmoil is often the weight in a Pelican personís life.
Pelican teaches you how not to be overcome by your troubles,
but rather to rise above them.

Pelican shares nesting sites and food with others and
therefore teaches unselfishness.
Teamwork is key for a person with a Pelican totem.
