The Native American Tarot is the creation of a husband and wife team: Magda and J. A. Gonzalez. Magda "envisioned a tarot deck with a Native American theme encompassing lore from all the North American nations." She elicited the help of her artist husband to manifest her vision in colored pencil. This deck is based on the customs, lore and traditions of many different tribes including those from the East, Plains, Southwest, and Northwest. The suit names, court cards and many major arcana cards reflect the Native American theme. The back design is based on a Navaho sand painting and incorporates many Native American symbols. There is a separate companion book for this deck called Star Spider Speaks: The Teachings of the Native American Tarot.
