The traditional medicine bag was originally designed for physical healing. The medicine man would put his medicines in the leather pouch and use them to heal physical ailments. These beaded amulet bags are intended for your spiritual and emotional benefit – put in a religious medal, pictures, locks of hair, your daily medicine, or whatever you feel is your “good luck” totem. This is not just any beaded bag class – you will be creating a traditional Mohawk medicine bag that has been passed from generation to generation. These bags, made by Robin, are sold in the gift shop at the Department of the Interior and valued at $250!
All beads and materials are included in tuition. Please bring a bag lunch and a pair of magnifier glasses as the beads you will be working with are small.
