Totem Trade Bead:"two-legged Ones" - Anina Hiladahi For Sale

Totem Trade Bead:

I offerAporcelain Totem Bead, though multiples may be chosen and are available. Each bead is incised using symbols from the Cherokee Syllabary, a language system developed by Sequoyah, each letter represents a sound. The sounds formthe name of an animal in the Cherokee tongue, traditionally used to help one identify with that particular Animal Spirit.
The main purpose of the bead isto help one tap into a part of the brain not normally used by modern people, one which in a past age was an integral part of one's perception of reality. It gives a sense of identity in relation to the animal spirit favored and contained by each of us; as both a teacher and guide. Depending upon which animal name you select, that will be the one I send. If you select more than one, I include a legend showing which animal is represented by what symbols, and the proper orientation and pronunciation of each. As far as uses; it can be used as a pendant in a necklace, as a lanyard, a bolo tie, a keychain, tied onto the end of a braid, or placed into a medicine bag, to name a few. I hope this has answered some of your questions...feel free to contact me if you have any more, I will do my best to answer them. As each bead is made the name is sounded out, and the image of that animal is formed in my mind while I work the clay. The beads are then stained with Ocher, and as they are kiln-fired, they are smudged with Sage. Due to the large number of bead types I make and offer,I have combined several listings together . The "Two Leggeds" were a traditional reference tothe Winged Tribes, of which The People (Cherokee) were included. ( Anina Hiladahi translates as "Flyers" ) They were the subjects of many tales and legends of the Cherokee; and were important due to the part they played in shaping the people'sdestiny,as powerful and wise Totemic allies. The Cherokee Syllabary is readily available online should you forget the pronunciation of your bead's name. The dimensions of the beads are from 17-20mm, being a handmade item, they will vary some. The colors range from reds to yellow, orange, through brown to black,sometimes even"gun-metal". This variation is a result from being propane fired to about 2400 degrees fahrenheit, with the fuel swirling around inside the kiln, hitting each bead with a slightly different blast. I consider making these beads a small effort towards keeping our language and heritage alive, one bead-at-a-time. Thank you for looking.
