  • Deer Hide Rattles

    100$ Canadian
    A rattle is a Spiritual Tool that takes a serious beating (and keeps on ticking, for all you old folk out there)  Sewing a rawhide rattle is quite a tricky process.  Getting the stitching really even, tight and strong takes some serious skill.  A rattle has to be strong, perfect tied so that it doesn’t fall apart with all that beating.  What is inside the rattle has to be interesting, appealing and pleasing to the ear.  All this to say…..Tribal Spirit makes a really great rattle.  We are very proud of our rattles and you will be too.
  • Teníye Hand Shaker/Rattle

    65$ Canadian

    Teníye means Moose in the Secwepemc language (Joywind is Secwepemc). and the ends of this rattle are moose….so…. This is a GREAT school situation rattle.  Great tone and indestructible!!  lol

    This 6 inch long rattle is a cabinetmaking piece of magic combining Moose Rawhide and Ash wood to create a very cool rattle.  White Ash is a very clean hard wood that is very effective as a rattle cuz it amplifies the tone.  Each end is capped with 1/4″ moose rawhide so the as you are playing, the glass beads are rattling around the wood as well as the rawhide.  This rattle is virtually indestructible and so it is the perfect shaker for a little person….and also perfect for travelling when you don’t want to carry a drum but need some percussion handy.  This shaker will also be very sweet in Sweatlodge…small but carries a big voice. We have made two designs.  Natural (bear greased with latex varnish) or Red Stain with varnish.
