Native American Rattles -Rawhide, Gourd, Turtle

Native American RattlesNative American rattles and shakers as they are known to Native Americans are very important to the Native American western Navajo culture as well as other tribes. An Indian rattle may be used as a dance rattle or to accompany the rhythm of the Native Indian drums. Navajo people as well as nearly every other tribe use rattles in Native American ceremonial rituals. Our traditional Native American rattles for sale are made by Tarahumara Indians, Navajo artists and others. Ceremonial music often includes the use of turtle shell rattles. Of the many types of Indian rattles it is probably the turtle shell rattle as well as Native American "gourd rattles" that are the most well know, and the simple rawhide rattle is very common to all tribes in Native American culture. 

Buyer Testimonial: I received the rattle in the mail today, and I have to tell you how blown away I am! This is really powerful, and I feel strong river of energy emanating from it with every shake it makes, very different from the one I already have. It arrived just in time as I am about to head out to the country for the spring equinox (ours is tomorrow) to spend some time alone in the bush and herald in the shifting energy and renewal. It is going to be a great few days and a perfect opportunity to get aquainted with this new medicine... thank you so much! Szymon, Australia
