  • Ceramic Smudge Bowls

    25$ Canadian50$ Canadian
    We designed these Ceramic Smudge Bowls with our potter friend to create a better Abalone shell.  In the native community we love to use Abalone shells for smudging because their natural holes help feed the coals and the bowl is deep enough that it holds the smudge well while burning.  Our clay smudge bowls are designed to look JUST like abalone.  They have a rough back, holes to air the coals, smooth polished inner ‘shell’ which will not burn, peel or stain and can be washed, even in the dishwasher.  The really unique and practical thing about our ‘shells’ is that they won’t heat up while smudging.  Abalone shells can become quite awkward to hold after 15 minutes of smudging people as the shell becomes too hot to hold.  Not ours.  A completely unique gift for the smudger in the family!!
    Available with these animals on shell (during check out process please indicate your top 3 preference, we will do our best).  Buffalo, Wolf, Bear, Turtle or Eagle.
  • Wood Goose wing fans- Side Profile

    25$ Canadian
    **  Shipment within Canada ONLY.   Non Canadian customers please do not purchase, or we will need to refund. (This is due to US migratory bird regulations)
    We have been not so much hunters but very good gatherers for a very long time.  Locally each year people hunt goose and snow goose legally along the Saint Laurence river near Montreal.  They eat the meat but the wings are not used.  We have arranged for an outfitter to save the wings for us.  Last year we brought them down a huge freezer…..when they filled it we drove down and picked up the wings.  We did this two time last fall and we are very well stocked in wings and feather.  They would have ended up all in the garbage.  We did not kill these birds for the feathers.  In our tradition we use all that is possible, we respect the lives of those around us and feel that to extend the medicine of these winged ones is respect for their gift.
    These Fans are used for many purposes.  They are great for Smudging (burning medicines, sage, sweetgrass etc) and blowing /moving the smoke over someone/thing to be blessed or cleansed.  Our fans are also very popular for dancers.  In Powwows both men and women dancers have fans as part of their regalia.  These are perfect.
    Of our wood fans we make them out of Eastern Cedar and Butternut. (if you have a preference please specify in commence section at check out or send us an email)
