My name is Cheyenne and I recently came across this item thrown in the back of a thrift shop. Growing up removed from our families culture I never felt right about leaving these types of things in thrift shops to be mishandled and/or be sold to someone who doesn’t appreciate it or won’t take the time to learn about it. That’s what brings me here! I’m not sure actually which area or which peoples this item came from, however it does have beadwork (since faded to a white colour) and caribou fur still intact along the top of the hollow wooden shaft. It’s been hand carved inside and out however I would love to learn more about this item, and or the name and peoples it came from to help me figure out if this is a piece I should be reuniting with someone! :) thank you!
