Isolation Specials - Virtual Powwow !!

In our experience… when times get tough…Natives get CRAFTING.

The Indigenous community is used to being self sufficient.  We are used to economically challenging times and we have the skill to create and survive.  Crafting is in our collective memory and we know how to reach back for those teaching and make a pair of moccasins, mitts etc to sell in order to feed our families. Tribal Spirit is reducing prices on lots of raw materials (leather, rawhide, drum kits etc) in order to help each other feed our families.  While other larger companies have been forced to shut down, we are an Indigenous Family business and we (Joywind and Rob) are making, packing, labeling and shipping every day.  The Post and Fedex are deemed essential services, and we believe that for the Native community……what we do….is also an essential service.

COVID-19 Update – Feb 2021

Our small family-run business is still up and running and working from home as we usually do.  We are extremely well stocked and shipping daily all over Turtle Island!

    Deer Leather in Natural Tones: ‘Seconds’

    This year we have a bunch of new shades of leather we could call ‘natural’ tones. We have a medium gold, cedarwood, brown, light gold, sage cream and light cream.  In the tanning business, getting perfect smooth side in colours is very tricky.  Wild hides often have scar marks, or blemishes on the smooth side of the leather, we call these ‘seconds’. The suede side is always 98% perfect.  So if you are planning on using the suede side out in your project and would like to save some $$, we strongly recommend our Deer ‘Seconds”.  Pieces average 10 sq ft.

     

  • White Sage Stick Special

    3$ US35$ US

    White Sage Stick Special 20% off.  Long long time ago…..when we were but young whipper snappers…..we used to winter, while o the Powwow Trail in Desert Hot Springs at an RV park with the best hot spring ever!!  We would drive out into the mountain in eastern California and harvest White Sage.  We would fill paper bags and dry it on top of our RV in beaming sun of the desert…..and then sneak across the border with the rig filled with sage….hehe….over the years we have connected with a Dene/Navajo family who harvest Sage as part of their families income.  Their most recent shipment to us included a little deal….which we pass on to you.  Very very nice sage sticks measuring between 4 to 5 inches are 1 1/2 inches wide.   Individual or 6 or 12.

    This Special is for individuals or families surviving isolation or lockdown.   If you need a large quantity, please purchase at: https://tribalspiritmusic.com/artists/traditional-medicines/

     

  • Deer Leather Colours ‘Seconds’ Mixed Bundles

    275$ US440$ US

    New for this year we are now offering all kinds of coloured deer leather.  In the tanning business, getting perfect smooth side in colours is very tricky.  Wild hides often have starch marks, or blemishes on the smooth side of the leather, we call these ‘seconds’. The suede side is always 98% perfect.  So if you are planning on using the suede side out in your project and would like to save some $$, we strongly recommend our Deer ‘Seconds”.  The colour on the suede side is perfect often better than the smooth side.  I mean the red suede side is EXTREMELY red….the same goes for all the colours. If you want individual pieces in “seconds” go to the colour you need and choose from options.

  • Moose Leather – Mix Colour Bundles – ‘Seconds’

    192$ US385$ US

    This year we have 7 different colours of moose leather.  People have been asking for some mixtures so we decided to bundle up colours that work together and offer a little deal.  We have a Cream, Black, Gold, Royal Blue, Cedarwood, Turquoise and Cork.

    When creating moose leather there are always hides that have the membrane/skin scuffed up from the wild life the moose lived.  We put those pieces aside as ‘seconds’. The suede side is 98% perfect but smooth side not so much. But if you please to use suede side out this is a great way to save some $$. Pieces will average 8 sq ft. if you need larger sizes please go to the colour you want (scroll down on main moose leather page) and you can select different sizes.

  • Gold Moose Leather Bundle Special (40% off!)

    98$ US196$ US

    Gold Moose Quarters 3 1/2 ounce 40% off

    Cuz it is January we decided to take inventory of all our leather.  We realized that we had an abundance of Gold/Tan Moose that we considered not #1.  The suede side is 100% perfect but the smooth side is scuffed or scratched.  Gathering and processing wild animal hides is trickier than farmed animals cuz wild animals live a…. wilder life….Generally you can count of a farmed hide to be perfect….but not so much wild.  BUT. If you like to make your clothing, moccasins, mitts etc with the suede side out then this is a great deal.  Available in 25 sq ft and 50 sq ft bundles.  Each bundle will include several pieces adding up to 25 or 50 sq ft.
