Description

Singing Talavai Katsina Medicine Bag... The herald of the new dawn, the Morning Singer Katsina represents the spirits of all the stars and planets.
Hopi Morning Singers, (Talavai Kachinas) used to appear in pairs on the rooftops to sing. This Kachina represents early morning or dawn because he appears at dawn during the Bean Dance and announces the news. He sings songs to wake the village while passing out bean sprouts for the people to eat. During the day, they would dance with the other kachinas, whom they led and prompted in the singing. They still appear with the other kachinas in the Powamu Ceremony and are most often standing in a set to one side of the main movement of the procession. The Powamu Ceremony is also called the Bean Planting Festival. It is observed in late January or early February and lasts 8 days. Occasionally, they sing as they stand holding their spruce trees and ringing their bells. The Morning Singer wears the red and white maidens robe, which is typical of any kachina that appears in the early morning.
Kachina dolls are traditionally carved from the roots of cottonwood trees which once were abundant on and near the Hopi lands. The Hopi word for cottonwood root is paako, which means water wood, and the cotton-wood root's ability to seek and find abundant water mirrors the ability of the Katsinam to do the same for the Hopi people.The word kachina (kah-chee-NAH) has long been used by outsiders to refer to any of the hundreds of spiritual beings central to Hopi religious life as well as to the dolls that depict them. However, according to the Hopi, Katsina (kahts-ee-NAH) is preferred. In English, the plural of kachina is kachinas, but in the Hopi language, the plural of Katsina is Katsinam.

This black bag is 3 1/2 by 5 inches embellished with turquoise, terracotta and black glass beads on a 27-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.
