Description

Big Brother Bear Medicine Bag... Another CUSTOM order for this image of Brother Bear Medicine Bag...

Brother Bear Medicine Bag...
In New Mexico, some Native Peoples here have honored and revered the bear for centuries. They have healing power and are close kin to the human. Unfortunately, brother is a term we as humans abandoned some time ago and there is undisputed evidence of that... Most tribes in North America, with very few exceptions, never call him "bear", call the bear beloved, warrior, healer, uncle, Grandmother, kin...brother

Bears live in the forests of our state and some on the edges of the desert landscape. New Mexico's Smoky the Bear became world famous in the Capitan, NM, fires in the 50's. The bear is a visitor and raider at our campsites. They rummage for food that humans are known to bring in to their habitat. We have reduced a majestic creature to being trash diggers and dumpster divers. The campers have taken to offering sweets like marshmallows to purposefully draw in local bears to appear in pictures of the family feeding and enjoying the bears company. Do to this reckless behavior by humans, bears now hunt within campsites for trash and easy food. Humans have been hurt and property destroyed because of food being brought into tents for what they think is safekeeping. Bears are not dissuaded by barriers like tents. Park rangers try their level best to convince anyone in our forests that bears have NO fear of humans and they will scavenge camps ruthlessly for food and sweets. As a kid, many a bear has made a nighttime raid and reared upright to shove and rock a camping trailer in an attempt to get food. Because of our foolishness, the bear has been tranquilized, shot, relocated, taken from their family units and cubs and finally made extinct like the Mexican grizzly. Game and Fish, in their wisdom, relocate these bears 100's of miles from their habitats that have been home, since birth, for a strange and dangerous place. No idea where water is and the food they are used to is gone.

Wear this majestic image of our kin, our brother, the Brother Bear Medicine Bag...

This black bag is 3 1/2 by 5 inches embellished with picture jasper and black glass beads on a 32 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.
