“Naja” is the name the Navajo gave to a symbol believed to have originated in the Middle East in ancient times. It's believed to have been created as a talisman that was usually affixed to horses’ bridles for protection. One theory is that the Navajo saw it on the Spanish Mexicans and adapted the symbol.
The Naja is also representative of the womb and if worn as a pendent with a turquoise stone in the center the stone is said to represent a child thats protected by the Naja.
