Good Morning! Today I would like to share some of our medicine bags and amulet bags. Many times I have been asked what does that mean "medicine bag". In the year 2015 I suppose it can mean whatever you want it to. For me and how I learned about it in the Native American circles I have been a part of, it is a pouch that can be made of any material you wish. Leather, cotton, hemp etc. It can be plain or beaded, large or small. People can carry or keep a special stone, crystal or some special medicine with them. Some use it for protection or a special prayer. In my opinion it can be for whatever is your intention, your prayer. A leather pouch can keep something you hold dear very safe and protected. I have received some special items in and or around ceremonies I have attended and I keep these in a special medicine bag. I also like to keep some of my favorite medicines (herbs) in a special leather pouch. That is what I understand them to be.
Now let me show you some of the ones I have made. I really enjoy making these leather pouches for people.
