- Our selection of pipes ranges from the tiny, four-inch mini-pipe to the fully dressed Peace Shield with crossed arrows and pipe. Don't miss taking a peek at our beautifully hand-carved and -beaded elk horn pipes made by the Creek Indians.
War Trophy Shields
- These war trophy shields were symbols of victory, made from an element of a spoil of war and displayed proudly.
Arrows and Lances
- We're proud to offer a wide range of intricately decorated arrows, all handmade with handwrapped tips of stone, bone or metal. Each arrow is unique. You can find different varieties of these at Kachina House including old-style war lances and spears decorated with traditional elements by southwestern Native American Indians. Four-way crossed arrow displays are symbols of friendship and represent a prayer for good health and prosperity.
We also have beautiful bow and gun cases as well as arrow quivers that are also handmade by Native American Indians living here in the Southwest.
- Our bows are spectacular examples of Native American Indian culture and artistry, and we carry traditional reproduction hunting bows.
Breastplates and Chokers
Breastplates were worn by warriors in battle and protected them from arrows and spears. After the introduction of the bullet in the late 1600s, the breastplates had no purpose except to give the warrior a sense of personal strength. The chokers and mini-breastplates are smaller items used primarily for adornment.
- The cradleboard is not only a practical convenience for carrying an infant, but also symbolizes the love of a mother for her child.
Dreamcatchers and Medicine Wheels
- The Native Americans tell of the Dreamcatcher and the good dreams it assures and the Medicine Wheel and the good health the wheel brings and protects. These small pieces have become classic international symbols for good dreams and good health.
Drums and Flutes
- Native American drums and flutes are used for celebrations, ceremony and mourning. The Native American drum is the heartbeat of the Native people, the flute is the call of birds and the sound of the wind.
Hatchets and Tomahawks
- Native American weapons show the resourcefulness of the Native American and variety of materials he used to make weapons. Our selection includes antler, jawbone, stone and metal.
Dance Sticks and Trail Markers
- Dance sticks are traditionally used by braves and warriors as they danced at various ceremonies. Our trail markers are rich with elements that are highly symbolic of the particular clan or family that uses them to mark the trail. They are used to mark a territory for a ceremony or meeting, or simply to indicate a family's home or the trail a scout has followed.
These beautiful artifacts are used to send your prayers to the spirits on the winds.
Knives are a personal item for Native Americans and all other indigenous people. Native American knives were employed in close quarters fighting or thrown from horseback. Knives were also used for scalping enemies, which became a trademark for some of the Native American tribes.
Medicine Bags, Pouches and Handbags
- Fetish Bags for carrying a talisman or fetish, or Medicine bags filled with herbs and powerful stones were used by Native people. These bags are now used in many cultures and hold herbs, sage for smudging, personal power stones, crystals and fetishes. They have become so popular that they have even expanded into handbags.
- Warbonnets are the best-known type of Indian headdress today, they were actually worn by only a dozen or so Indian tribes such as the Sioux, Crow, Blackfeet, Cheyenne, and Plains Cree in the Great Plains region. Warbonnets were important ceremonial regalia worn only by chiefs and warriors.
