All items are hand made with prayer and reflect Chumash culture, cave/rock paintings motifs of the unique area of southern California coastal and mountain native peoples. The feathers are cruelty free and are twined with yucca fiber and artificial sinew cordage while, the abalone shell pendants carvings, charms, beads and clasps, are hand made as well as the the wood and bone items.

I am open to all serious business ventures and offer wholesale prices for established stores, pow-wow vendors and offer custom designs for individuals and organizations.

Sending my prayers and love to all during these times we find ourselves in and thank you for supporting this Chumash Style endeavor and brand.

Tani, Yo Hey
