These philosophies have manifold meanings that parallel each other in copious ways. Most notable are their uses in physical and mental health. At the heart of these philosophies lies the principle of balance, understanding of the cyclical nature of life, seasons, directions and respect for the process of rejuvenation. The Wu Fu symbolizes good fortune through the Five Happiness?s: health, wealth, longevity, virtue, and a natural death. The red bat specifically encompasses the luck of vast fortune.

These fish carry with them connotations of fertility and renewal as well as respect for the cycles of the natural world. First Nations people have great respect for the salmon and often perform salmon ceremonies to celebrate the return of the salmon each year. According to First Nations legend it is important to return the bones of the fish to the water so the salmon people will be happy and return each year.
