Tribal Spirit Deer Hide Rattles are made with a maple handle and a Deer hide rattle head. Inside we put a combination of copper pellets, glass beads and pebbles we gathered from a beach in Nova Scotia. Deer rattles are not suitable for sweat lodge…the hide is softer and will absorb humidity and can get squished. Deer is also a thinner hide and produces a higher tone. Available in natural or dyed hide.
