An ode to our ancestral trade routes from the coast to the plains in dramatic dentalium drops. Long gilded bone acetate dentalium with matte metallic gold acetate "buckskin" segments and hypo-allergenic silver kidney hooks. Light enough for everyday wear.

Dentalium represents wealth of our pre-contact abundance -  a conical tooth shell harvested on the Pacific Coast, traded inland between coastal nations and our Plains ancestors for thousands of years and threaded into adornment, represents the wealth of our traditional commerce, thriving trade routes and kinship ties that are being rekindled.

To me, wealth redefined is our language, health, healing, food, joy and land outside of the narrow colonial capitalistic definitions. 

3 oz & 10 inches in length.

PLEASE NOTE: Pre-Sale items ship in 2-6 weeks.

As alway, Authentic Indigenous Adornment handmade in so-called Canada.
