The ''Sisiutl'' is a common Northwest Native American piece of Mythology – in which a ''Snake God'' was invoked for Healing Arts (Medicine). Most varieties of a Sisiutl are related to various Creation Mythos. The style of personification in Rituals (Ceremonial Dances), is that of a Mask with Twin Snake Heads or Faces, brightly painted. Such Masks were common worn outside of such Dances by Medicine Men (Shaman), when they performed their ''remedies''. This was to convey to the sick person, that a ''God'' was ''healing'' them.
