Tribal Specials

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.  Take care!!!

  • ‘and now for something special’

    31$ US57$ US

    Everything in this category is of limited supply and extra special.  If you see it and it interests you, please don’t assume it will be around for long.  This past hunting season we went all out to expand our hide collection network and have started working with a new family-owned Canadian tannery.  This new tannery tends to put aside some cool hide and then surprises me, when it arrives.

    Purple Deer Split & Gold/Tan Deer Split, :  This leather is suede both sides running 1 1/2 to 2 ounces in weight.  The softest, sweetest leather you have ever touched. Perfect for beading, baby clothing, lining of cradle boards etc.  For the purple splits, the hides are quite large….you won’t see such large split hides again….t’was kinda an accident at the tannery, they took the membrane of a couple dozen hides by mistake.

Raw hide is not leather….it has not been tanned….The process of creating rawhide involves removing the hair and thats it!! When soaked in water overnight it will become soft (like skin) and then when stretched over a drum and dried the skin becomes hard and sings. These are quite large hides and will make at least 3 and as many as 5 drums (depending upon the size of drum frame).
