    Medicine Bags Kits

    66$ US 52$ US
    Our new Moose Leather Medicine Bags KITS!!
    One of the handiest things around the fire or gathering is a nice smudge kit or medicine bag.  Our pre-made kit includes a Moose Bag that we make, and a farmed abalone shell, sage and a small feather fan.  Recently we have had several people ask if they could make it themselves….and who are we to say no!!  So, our new 8″ Smudge Bag Kit consists of a front and back piece of leather (to be hand sewn together to create the bag), a moose leather strap (to be sewn into the side of the bag), Sinew, glovers needles AND very careful clear instructions on how to assemble your bag.  The kit also include a fan (that we make for you) and farmed abalone shell and a linen bag of Californian Buffalo/White Sage.  We also suggest several different finishing techniques so that everyone can personalize their own bag.  Making the bag is an easy project that will make a great afternoon for the family or workshop.  Our bags can even be created virtually over zoom for an Isolated Gang.
     
    Attention USA customers: we are not permitted to ship feathers into the United States.  Our thought is to add more white sage and a piece of leather to your Medicine Bag Kit to compensate for the missing fan.  AND perhaps this is an opportunity to make your own fan. We use a small branch, drill holes and glue feathers into the branch.  Then you can wrap the wood with leather we have included.
  • Bear Grease – Creams

    19$ US

    Bear Grease – Goldenseal/Infection

    Goldenseal powder has been in our families ‘medicine chest’ for years.  As workers/crafters/drum makers when we cut ourselves, we reach for the goldenseal…..24 hours later all is good.  Goldenseal is a natural antibiotic and  will heal an infection like nothing else I have used.  This mixture is designed to be used for any cut or scrape.  Put a small amount on the wound and then cover with a bandage.  I find you can leave the bandage on for a couple days and the cut is gone!!!  
    Ingredients include pure bear grease, almond oil, goldenseal and shea butter.  Store in the fridge long term. Jars are 20 ml. 
     
    Bear Grease – Face Cream

  • White Sage

    4$ US46$ US

    Available as stick, 1/2 or full pound.  White or Buffalo sage is used in ceremony to purify or clean.  Most gatherings, ceremonies or sweats will begin with a smudging and mostly involving sage.  There are many different kinds of sage used in the community and our favourite is this White sage.  A small leaf will light very easily, blow out the flame, and will continue to smoke until it burns out.  Check out our fans or smudge kits as people will often use a fan to waft the smoke.  Available in loose leaf or as a tied sage stick.

  • Sweetgrass

    12$ US

    Sweetgrass is one of the most important Traditional Medicines.  We are very picky about where we get our sweetgrass.  Some growths of sweetgrass are in crisis because of over picking or harvesting by pulling out the root.  At the moment we are working with two families who harvest sweetgrass, with ceremony and pluck the leaves without pulling the root.  Our medium braids are long but thinner, from Saskatchewan.  We keep our Sweetgrass carefully wrapped in a towel (towel smells really amazing!! Lol) so the grass is lush and still very green.  (Keep your sweetgrass wrapped up in a towel or leather otherwise it will lose its power and colour).

    Medium – 28″- 30″ Long, 3/4″ wide

  • Raw Maple Sugar Nuggets

    4$ US

    Raw Maple Sugar Nuggets:  We are including this in our Tribal Medicine category because a “spoonful of maple sugar absolutely makes the medicine go down”. lol….This sugar is Native made by a friend of ours.  He gathers and boils maple sap every year and with some of his syrup makes raw sugar.  He also boils over an open fire….the old fashioned way..so this sugar has a wonderful smokey maple flavour.  A touch of this sugar in your coffee is pure magic….and simply popping a nugget into your mouth will bring a smile to your face and a spring in your step…try adding a bit to your spaghetti sauce…heck adding a maple nugget to anything to replace sugar improved the recipe by 100%.
