  • Rattle Kits (Moose, Deer or Buffalo)

    30$ Canadian45$ Canadian

    Rattle Kits!! Brand New by Tribal Spirit. We make really great Drum Kits and by popular demand we decided why not Rattle Kits. Crafting in the Native community is in the blood and the best healing work, team building or group sharing happens in a workshop. We like to create Kits that are very simple for leaders. Everything is included, so that a great time is had by all. We are offering a Deer, Moose or Buffalo Rattle Kit. Each kit comes with a carefully selected piece of rawhide (shape traced out to be cut), glovers needles, sinew, maple wood handle and wool to stuff and shape the rattle. We also include several different options for variety for creating sound (pebbles, copper pellets, glass beads etc). Our kit includes very clear instructions to make your workshop a huge success.  We would advise that newbies (beginners) start with a deer rattle kit.  Moose and Buffalo are thicker hides, (make great Sweatlodge rattles btw) and are harder to sew….

  • Bear Hide Rattles/Shakers (Lollipop)

    85$ Canadian
    Tribal Spirit Black Bear Shakers are made with steamed White Ash wood body/shell covered with Bear Rawhide, maple handle with bear fur. These shakers have very strong tones with lots of variety.  For a strong sound, shaking the beads across the rattle striking the ash inside the tone is quite loud and dramatic.  Shaking the other direction hide to hide it is much softer and subtle, while holding the shaker flat and rolling the beads around the surface of the rattle creates a wave/ocean effect.  These shakers will be just amazing in the sweatlodge.
