The walrus has been a symbol of protection. To dream of a walrus means that you most likely are the dominant person in many of your waking life relationships. You use your intelligence to outthink those people that look to best you. Conversely, the walrus may indicate that you have the ability to ignore catty comments and criticism from others.

Eskimos and some northern Native American tribes hold the walrus in high esteem and have given it supernatural attributes.
