Description

Elder Brother Náshdóítsoh Medicine Bag... I know you can see just how much I feel for my elder brother. I give him all the greatness I am capable of giving through my creations. I admire his ability to be seen and not heard even though I am his nearby neighbor. I will continue to do him honor...

The Zuni of New Mexico have made fetishes of the Mountain Lion since time began. Zuni hunters carry them for success in hunting and for its healing capability. The American lion is their symbol of protection & healing. Changing woman gave the Cougar or Mountain Lion the name Náshdóítsoh.
The state of New Mexico has a large population of cougars. Between 2000 and 3000 at any given time. The predator has now become the prey and the BLM issues 31 licencing permits for the big cat every year. Human cities were built upon mountain lion habitat. We did not consult the Cougar when we made that decision. While building these towns and cities, we have killed out its prey as well so they wander into populated areas occasionally seeking a food source. They prefer our garbage to humans but the later have run into them and given them cause to defend themselves...just because of being startled and fearful. Being a great hunter, capable of bringing down the mighty elk, humans assume that they, too, might be seen as food. So, humans decided to fear the great cat and out of that crazed fear they kill the cougar on sight. Recently, a beautiful Elder Brother wandered very near an elementary school and, of course, was destroyed for getting to close. Simply because the mountain lions got crowded out and the trespassers took over their home.

When camping, I hear its scream in the night and know I am his neighbor in New Mexico. You can be his neighbor, too, with Elder Brother Náshdóítsoh Medicine Bag...

This dark chocolate bag is 3 1/2 by 5 inches embellished with picture jasper stone and dark wood beads with a 25 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.
