ARTIST NAME: Aiden ShortCloud ᏥᏍᏕᏥ ᎤᎶᎩᎸ ᏍᏆᎳᎢ TRIBAL AFFILIATION: Cherokee ᏣᎳᎩ ᎠᏂᏴᏫᏯ Comes with Certificate of Authenticity Portions of this sale are sent to my tribe and various communities I am involved with. I also donated items to various prisons to help fund their Native American programs and help those who can not help themselves. Inedible meat is donated to zoos and local raptor rehab facilities. I also carry real wolf, mountain lion and bear items. You are buying directly from a Native American artist.ᏩᏙ/ ᏍᎩ Wado/Sgi I am also a recognized member of the Indian Arts and Craft Association ᏙᎾᏓᎬᎰᎢ Donadagvhoi Until you and I see each other again. I am Cherokee enrolled but I am Adopted Lakota, so therefore many of my crafts also reflect the artwork of the people of the plains. This particular piece is NOT traditional Cherokee. I have permission from plains people to make these items. This GORGEOUS bag measures 14" long by 11" tall 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 tanned buckskin on this piece. The beads are solid heavy brass, not the cheap hollow pieces a lot of people use. Buckskin straps are a little over 15" on each side, total of approx 30" This is a handbag not shoulderbag or purse. 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. 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.
