Literal meaning: Birch tree
The birch tree is a pioneer tree. It will be the first to take root in ground cleared by fire. It reminds us that it is never too late to start anew. Berkano connects you to the power of the great mother. It speaks of beginnings and endings and holds both the gift of abundant life and the silence of death.
Berkano is the precursor to the Modern English letter ‘B’
