I love the tradition and that moment your baby wants to get out there and dance…it becomes the responsibility of family and friends & other dancers on the pow wow grounds to step up and take the newbies by the hand and bring them on their first dance. Skydance with cousin Vicky on her first dance. A treasured and honoring moment on part of our journey through life honoring it with the beauty of Dance.

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!

Someone once told me turkey feathers symbolize fertility abundance, pride & regarded for having healing & cleansing properties. I like to make smudge fan feathers with these. My hunter relatives and friends often drop me items after hunting season to keep the flow of artwork and crafts going. Nothing wasted. Honoring our neighbors the Winged beings.
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.
I like it when i make something and someone i know spots it at a pow wow then a good trade is about to happen.
