Dance Sticks and Trail Markers
At Kachina House we carry a selection of Native American dance sticks and trail markers, handmade by artists from various tribes. Crafted and accented with natural materials, we offer unique objects of art and craft.
Crafted by Native American Cherokee, Creek, and Navajo Indians with great attention to detail, our Native American trail markers and dance sticks are sure to enhance any collection. Dance sticks are traditionally used by braves and warriors as they dance at ceremonies.
Trail Markers are wonderful historical pieces…no longer in use. The trail marker was used by a clan or family to mark a trail. It indicated the direction to a ceremony, meeting, or the home of a clan member. The colors on the trail marker are the clan colors. Deer antlers represent family and gentleness. A medicine wheel is placed between the horns to protect the family from harm and misfortune. The various skulls used hold specific meanings for the Native people. Feathers are a connection with prayer and protection; They hold and carry dreams and prayers and protect you and your family. A spearhead at the bottom of a trail marker was used for securing the marker into the ground. A trail marker without the spearhead denotes a clan living in a mountainous region, and these markers were hung by a rope or strap from trees or placed by a boulder.
