9" rattle by Irene Morgan (Navajo)
Native American artifact reproduction. Traditionally, Native American Indians used bows, arrows, and tomahawks for their daily devotion of bringing in the hunt and defending their territorial rights. When not in use, the weapons, peacepipes, rattles, and other implements would be displayed in the households for protection from all negative and evil forces. As Federal Law prohibits the collection or sale of archeological artifacts, present day Native American Indians carefully handcraft these artifact replicas. They continue to represent nobleness, strength, dignity, and courage.
