        I use to use rocks. BB's and various other things in my gourd and they would dent away the can
        But a friend of mine told me about popcorn! And just the popcorn that is left over in a bowl that has been popped.
        They are completly without water now and wont break,
        but they make a very nice sound and best yet won't dent your gourd!

          The thing I really like about that idea is the fact that there is actually a use for those dang unpopped kernels. LOL. Thanks Josiah and Rodond.....Kio-Manche

            While we are talking rattles, does anyone have suggestions on making the tassel that sits atop the rattle? The horsehair on the last one I made became a little uncontrolable, so I was wondering if there were some hints I could try on the next one. Thanks in advance for the help.

                I was taught that natural gourd rattles are for Peyote Ceremonies and religious dances and that Metal shakers are for gourd dancing. Southern Cheyenne.

                  That is a pretty common belief ! I was taught the same. With that said there are a lot of folks that use either. I'm also Southern Cheyenne.
                  I believe blood quantums are the governments way to breed us out of existance !


                  They say blood is thicker than water ! Now maple syrup is thicker than blood , so are pancakes more important than family ?

                  There are "Elders" and there are "Olders". Being the second one doesn't make the first one true !

                  Somebody is out there somewhere, thinking of you and the impact you made in their life.
                  It's not me....I think you're an idiot !

                    by Historian
                    A lecturer I heard recently, while explaining stress management to the audience, raised a glass of water and asked, "How heavy is this glass of water?" The answers called out ranged from 8 ounces to 20 ounces.

                    The lecturer then replied, "The absolute weight doesn't matter....

                    how to make "lady" earrings
                    by Dreams of Eagles
                    I have seen these earrings all over the place. I'm not sure if they are flat peyote or brick stitch. I have seen them as both earrings are the lady or one is a lady and one is a man. Everyone that I have asked doesn't have a pattern, they just know how to make them!

                    I could just buy a...
