How This Rattle was Made

"Each gourd (gourd is another of Mother Nature's wood items) is grown and crafted with respect and ceremony. PYROGRAPHY is used - carving into the surface with fire. Followed by using archival quality dyes, paints & sealer to accent the design, letting the beauty of the natural gourd shine through." - Cynthia Whitehawk

From Apache Artist Cynthia Whitehawk

RATTLES - To First Nations people, shakers or rattles represent rain (for Prayers of abundance and prosperity) and tears, especially those of emotional release. Tears of joy signifying when the mind, body, soul and Spirit connect. Ceremonially, rattles are used in cleansing and purifying, Spiritual guidance work, Celebration and in thanks and respect to Ancestral Spirits.

DRAGONFLY - Spiritually embodies the stripping away all negativity that holds us back, helping us to achieve our dreams and goals. Reminds us that anything is possible and is the keeper of dreams, the energy within that sees all of our true potential and ability. Dragonfly inspires Spiritually and Creatively, helps on the path of discovery and enlightenment.

MEDICINE WHEEL - The Medicine Wheel represents American Indian Spirituality - the journey each individual must take to find his or her path. The Medicine Wheel is based on the four cardinal directions and the four sacred colors. A circle represents life; at the center of the circle is the eternal fire.
