This decorated medicine bag measures 5 1/4 inches wide and 6 inches long and fringed.

A Medicine Bag is a traditional North American Indian container for various items of supernatural power.

Medicine items attributed with various supernatural abilities would often be procured in a tribal custom known as a vision quest. This ceremony includes personal sacrifice: fasting and prayer over several days in a location isolated from the rest of the community.

The purpose is to make contact with natural spiritual forces that help or guide people to reach their potential. The spirits, or totems, would aid the individual to gather magical items, increase knowledge and aid personal growth.

This nvwoti gvnvdvi (medicine bag) is decorated with a beaded strip, 21 cowry shells and crow beads. All my medicine bags are cleansed with sage and cedar for purification purposes as taught by the Elders.
