                                     SANDPAINTINGS

Sandpainting as Navajo Tradition is an integral and powerful part of religious chants

that are traditionally performed in the hogan for healing and protection.

The medicine man carefully draws the sandpainting on the hogan floor, drizzling colored sand between thumb and forefinger to achieve the elements necessary for the rite.

At the end of the ceremony, the sandpainting must be erased,

and ceremonial sand gathered and returned to Mother Earth.

 

Sandpaining as an art form developed when a change in attitude allowed symbolic representations

to be created without violating Navajo religion. Since then, traditional and innovative sandpaintings have become an integral part of Navajo art. Artisans continue to improve,

creating more intricate detail using the traditional ground sandstone in a variety of colors found in different locations on the Navajo reservation.

Sandpaintings often depict Mother Earth and Father Sky, of include figures such as “yeibechai”-the round-head male dancer and “yei”-square head female dancer. Many colorful Navajo legend are artistically depicted in contemporary sandpaintings.

Artifacts are recreations of historic traditional or ceremonial items. Native American tribes in the Southwest are employed to share their culture through the creation of these items. Every artifact recreation is made to be as realistic and as traditional as possible with the exception of utilizing eagle feathers as this is a right reserved for the native tribes alone. 

The artifacts we carry range from headdresses to dream catchers & quivers

(otherwise known as a arrow case worn like a one shoulder backpack)

to rattles, arrows, cradleboards and prayer feathers.
