Description

This Apache Hueco Medicine Bag is struck with this testament to a place that eeked out food and water sustaining our ancient New Mexico forbearers. Here since before the ancient Mogollon to the modern buffalo hunter and white/Mexican rancher. What might represent a shield or sacred marking is of ancient Mescalero Apache design, found at Hueco Tanks State Historical Park in El Paso, Texas.
In this case, the Mexican folks named this place “hueco,” still pronounced “whey-coe,” which is this natural rock basin where rainwater collects. These cracks and pockets hold rainwater for days even weeks depending on the location and size. Long after thousands of years of different societies, People of the Jornada Mogollon culture built a small village and grew corn and other crops in the soils that accumulated at the base of the boulders this site is made up of. Then, Apache slowly entered the region from the north, and by 300 years ago were using Hueco Tanks and the surrounding area as their hunting ground. They roasted agave, sotol, and yucca root balls in a large rock-lined pit at Hueco Tanks, and obtained water from pools on the bouldered hills. They added images to the growing gallery in the rock shelters, as did Kiowa and/or Comanche Indians who visited the Tanks from 200 to 100 years ago.
29 previously unknown locations with pictographs have been discovered and those areas will be closed to recreational activities to protect the Native Peoples rock paintings. Many of the Hueco Tanks pictographs seem to have been deliberately hidden from view. Researchers also have discovered that there are many more images at the park than meet the eye. Using new computer techniques, photographers have been able to identify and recapture hundreds of faded or previously unknown pictographs.

With these People, share the satisfaction of survival wearing the Apache Hueco Medicine Bag...

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.
