Medicine Feather Medicine Feather

  • Artist : Shinok
  • Nation : Chickasaw

This was made by the artist Shinok, a Chickasaw artist of exceptional artistic skills. He designed this medicine feather to use in smudging ceremonies or when ever you need healing. It has a small flint arrow at the end and held on with artifical sinew. There is symbols painted on the quill which extends down the length of the 12" imitation eagle feather. Hackle feathers extend from the arrow half-way down the feather.

This was made in 1993 and a small paper comes with this feather and it says:

"The flint represents Mother Earth. The feather represents the heavens and our fellow creatures. The flint, knapped into an arrowhead and the painted symbology indicate the presence of man. In this fetish, all are joined as one unit and coexist as part of the whole. This is the medicine our world needs today to heal. Thank you for helping to keep a small part of our Native American Hertiage alive. CREATED BY SHINOK-CHICKASAW ARTIST."
