Description

Beaded Native American made Buffalo Fetish. Made by Kerwin Davenport, Meskwaki tribal member.

I beaded this Buffalo with size 11 seed beads on buckskin and decorated it with glass crow beads ,brass cones. I placed white sage and Lavender inside the Buffalo, very aromatic.  Size; 4″ width X 6  3/4″ length.There are also many cautionary tales in which buffalo hunts are unsuccessful or result in hunters’ deaths because people have failed to respect the buffalo properly. Buffalo are seen as spiritually powerful in many tribes, especially in the Great Plains region; their horns and hides were often used for regalia and religious artifacts, and they are viewed as symbols of honor and generosity. In other tribal regions, buffalo are not considered as sacred as they are in Plains and Plateau tribes, but they still play positive roles in most Native American folklore, frequently associated with strength, endurance, and protection.

Buffalo are also used as clan animals in some Native American cultures.
