Description

The Coyotes Nephew Medicine Bag is accompanied by a story by the Jicarilla Apache People...

Coyote wanted the quiver and arrows that belonged to Owl... After he acquired them, he killed everything he saw. He wasn't afraid of anything.
The people talked about him among themselves. Some wise people said, "Let us not get after him in a fierce and direct way. Let us be crafty and in some clever way get his arrows. Let us make antelopes."...
They took two men and turned them into small antelopes. They put the two on the path through which Coyote went. This was near the plains country. The next time Coyote went that way he saw the antelopes in his path.
Coyote called to them, "My little nephews, let us race. I know you are just little children and can't get away from me." He kept saying this over and over. After a while, they got up. Coyote put the quiver on the back of one. On the other, he put the bow. He tried to drive them away from him. They tried to walk, but they stumbled and fell down.
Coyote thought it very amusing. "Oh, my little nephews, what"s the matter that you can"t run fast?"
The people had given the two antelopes a good talking to. They had said, "When you race with Coyote, do not run together."
So now they separated and went in different directions. They were running. Coyote ran after them. He ran first towards one and then towards the other. When he would nearly get to one, he would look back and see that the other one had almost fallen down. So he would start after the other and give up the first one. Coyote soon got tired running back and forth. When he had all but caught the first one, the second one would cry out and Coyote, looking back, would see that one fall and act weak. Then he would run after him.
So Coyote became very tired. He called to the antelopes, "Wait, my little nephews. I must tell you something. There is one thing I have not told you. But they wouldn't stop or listen."
So after a while, Coyote gave up. He was very angry. He said, "Whenever I see you, I"m going to get rid of you, my young nephews."
Coyote went to the chiefs home. He said to the chief, "You must tell your people that they must help me. They must circle around and catch the antelopes." The chief called his men and told them. They said they would help, and they circled around. But they were deceiving Coyote. They did not want him to keep his arrows. They said to one another, "Whenever you see those antelopes, do not stop them. Let them pass through the circle."
So the people went on the hunt. They surrounded and killed many antelopes. But the two with Coyotes bow and arrows they let pass. So the day passed without the capture of these two antelopes. Coyote asked for help the next day too. The people hunted, but they agreed among themselves not to kill the two antelopes with the quiver and arrows.
After four days Coyote got tired. He said, "All right, I'll give up my quiver and arrows. I"ll let them have it. The bow and quiver will turn to horns for my young nephews."

In New Mexico, these antelope are plentiful and are hunted for their meat. I will simply enjoy seeing them outside of town in small herds dining on alfalfa at dusk...

This buckskin leather medicine bag is 3 1/2 inches by 5 inches embellished with black glass and picture jasper beads with a 28-inch braided leather lanyard...

FAQs

The section called Gallery CUSTOM from Sold is to help customers wanting a custom-made bag to find similar bag ideas. Select one of these and I will make a CUSTOM bag for you similar to it or of the same subject matter. The bag color is of my choice but I will try to accommodate a special request. These bags cannot be duplicated, obviously, being one-of-a-kind creations. Once a custom-made order is placed there are no exchanges, new selection or return.
Earthwayspirits medicine bags are hand crafted and hand painted, one of a kind. The craftmeanship of the leather pouch is substantial. The beading is secured with polyester threat to prevent breaking. The painting, however, will not withstand misuse of any kind; stretching, scraping or exposing it to any liquids. I use a fabric paint sealant to make the paint and ink more adherant. Under normal wear and tear, earthwayspirits medicine bags should last years. Store in a dry, dark and cool place...
Allow me 8 days to create your medicine bag and then add shipping time. Please inquire through Etsy messaging if you would like to request a specific color leather or beading be used, only if available.
