Native American Made Otter Parfleche bag Rawhide  medicine bag deer pow wow regalia
Native American Made comes with Certificate of authenticity stating artist and tribe. This GORGEOUS bag measures 12x14" I make my own rawhide from locally harvested deer and elk every fall. This is made from a doe harvested for meat in the fall of 2016. I used acrylic paint and commercial buckskin on this piece. Buckskin straps are a little over 26" on each side, total of approx 52" Wool side straps really complete this one of a kind piece, perfect for practical daily use, ceremony or your private collection. This item should never be exposed to water it will ruin it. Traditionally women painted Geometric designs and wore them. With the exception of the Warbonnet pattern, that was usually painted by women for a man's robe. Men traditionally painted story items. This is a story item showing a bear paw for inner knowing and strength. For geometric design meanings.... The women usually never revealed what the geometric meanings were EXCEPT to the buyer. This is what gives the piece its protection. I hold that secret, know your item's meaning will never be revealed to anyone but you.
