The usual concept of a fetish is an object in the form of a living thing made of any material. In the Indian society, a fetish may belong to an individual, a secret society, a clan or it may be the property of the entire tribe. A fetish is thought to bring good luck &, if treated properly & w/veneration, will help or give power to its possessor. View more info
