It holds the incense sticks inside and then close it to find the hole that holds the incense stick…its a remake to a traditional war club. You can take something broken and make it new again. I started off making something with it. Along the way and fumbling with my sore hand…it fell to the floor. Positivity + Creativity added up to new creation!
You can find this one @ Doreen Stevens who left with it last night. This will be displayed and for sale in her Arts & Crafts Booth i believe is opening up today in Ottawa in the Market Place. Go Support your local artists! Handmade is the best made. You always know there is some story behind it all & made with TLC
Baby Loon Mini Traditional Fan Feather is dressed up with a deer bone handle and natural tan deer hide. Decorated with Beach glass from Lake Eerie. I collected beach glass along the Eerie shores along my travels. One summer day i was out having a nature walk up by a lake in my homelands Kitigan Zibi. I heard a Loon fly onto the waters…it seemed frantically searching for something when i noticed it. Loons remain close to their families. as i approached the lakeside I noticed a tiny baby loon had been attacked and it’s life was just not there anymore. When I am on nature walks I like to place tobacco on the ground and pray for its once upon a time life. I always tell my children…when we dance we enter the pow wow grounds wearing our buckskins and feathers and furs…we honor the life of our four legged friends, winged creatures, all creation…when we wear it we offer it new life that way my children as well as those i make regalia, arts, or crafts for discover the work I am putting into the regalia or items i make is being honored and recreated with TLC.
4 inch beaded ‘MWiW’ Men & Women’s Indigenious World Heir Peace
4″ Beaded ‘MWIW’ I like to call this Men & Women Indigenous World Heir Peace I like to call this looking through a different lens hoping to change the view on life where traumas are so hard to deal with. One cannot judge based on another’s life history. Everyone owns their own story Here & now…we are here to help unite and to help heal brokenness. Everyone has their own life history. Their own story to share. I have a cousin who was murdered in jail…an aunt who died in prison as well, a cousin whose mother got struck by authorities no one will ever know the truth of the matter..friends have gone missing they are now butterflies in spirit,, daughters of people i know we are praying for hoping will one day Come Home..no one will ever explain the truth of what really happened but the pain of what happened there still exists. Who will make the change to the path to Healing? It takes a great strength to stand up and keep standing & to break the pattern of life that has been altered by someone else’s hands. We Matter. We Exist. You matter. You are here…Now is the time. You can make the difference. Create the Change. BE what’s the Matter because in the end all that matters is that we lived…and what did you do to accomplish what you own? MWIW heir peace…I am a traditional dancer. its not much to step out…and sometimes it does not take much to do that or sometimes the burden is a lot to carry but never alone because that’s what Friends are for and You were meant to shine and even through the darkness /darkness can serve you like a star that is truly meant to be a beacon in the night…The colors on here are for everyone…at the center is You…even more so is to find yourself at the center of the universe. …MWIW…
