    Make your own Medicine Pouch!

    Learn about the meaning and how to make your own Medicine Pouch! The Medicine Pouch has been used by generations of Native American tribes for protection and medicine power.

    A medicine pouch is a container for items believed to protect or give spiritual powers to its owner. In the old days, medicine men carried a large medicine bundle that could hold numerous items such as seeds, herbs, pine cones, grass, animal teeth or claws, horsehair, rocks, tobacco, beads, arrowheads, bones, or anything else of relatively small size that possessed spiritual value to the bundle’s owner.

    Warriors also carried bundles that included important items, such as rattles, animal furs, special stones, or anything that meant something to the owner and was worn into battle.

    In traditional Native American culture, the pouch is usually made out of leather and stitched with sinew or rawhide lace to be worn around the next or in some instances to be hung in the similar fashion as the Dreamcatcher. 

    In this 1.5hr workshop, we will talk about what the Medicine Pouch means to the Indigenous peoples of North America and how we use it to protect our spirit in today’s modern world.
