Description

CUSTOM Cha' Risa Medicine Bag...

Cha' Risa is the Hopi word for the elk... Wapiti is the Shawnee and Cree word for elk meaning "white rump".

Elk are associated with love and in many tribes often credit elk with the creation of the first flute, an instrument used by men to woo women in many Native American cultures. In some Plains tribes, men saved the eyeteeth from their first elk kill to make into engagement jewelry for their sweetheart. In others, the number of elk teeth sewn onto a woman's dress showed off the wealth and skill of her husband or father. Elk are also considered to be particular protectors of women, and in some legends elk lead women who had been captured by enemy warriors back to their homes. Elk are also associated with coneflowers, such as the Ute, who refer to coneflowers as "elk root."

In some Pacific Northwest tribes, In Plains Indian tribes, elk were associated with masculinity, endurance and bravery. Elks' eyeteeth were highly valued both as objects of adornment and as the symbol of a man's hunting prowess.

Elk are also used as clan animals in many Native American cultures. Tribes with Elk Clans include the Menominee tribe (whose Elk Clan is named Amaskos), the Ottawa, and the Osage. The Elk Horn Society (also known as the Elk Warriors) was one of the major warrior societies of the Blackfoot tribe.

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.
