I am an Enrolled Cherokee, however I am adopted Lakota and I have been taught by many plains teachers how to paint both rawhide and actual hides. Cherokee people did not traditionally do these sort of robes, these skills were taught to me by my Plains native teachers. Your robe will still come with a certificate stating the art is genuine Native American Made. Just understand that thought I am Cherokee this is Lakota style art.

Eastern Canadian wolf robe all paws and claws Wolf measures 74" long adult female timberwolf harvested by Canadian law enforcement for population control Imported with other hides to save on costs, comes with CITES permit Copy. Wolves represent teachings and teamwork. They are balance keepers and excellent singers. This robe would be a good healing robe to help get someone through a tough life lesson or perhaps after a tough lesson help those seeking balance afterwards... From what I was taught: 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/winter count robes. I am Two-Spirit, meaning I was born female and I am now male. In white society I am known as a transgender person. What does this have to do with my work? For these particular pieces... EVERYTHING. In almost every native culture Two-Spirit people were considered sacred, learning both Male and Female roles within the tribe. I have the unique ability to do both Male and Female paintings on robes, and even combine the two. Robes are of high importance in the Native way. Firstly warriors would never paint their Tipi with their war victories... It made it too easy as to which tipi to attack first to take out the strongest (if you were an enemy) So robes were the #1 way to wear your story. never be revealed to anyone but you.
