Aho fellow travelers and friends. The hat bands that I weave tell a story of spirit and journey. The journey and story start right in the middle on both sides. Our unknown or great Mystery is represented by the black area between the tail of two fire arrows. Black always represents the unknown. Within all the emptiness lives a bright star that sends its medicine or energy out into the universe. I use yellow for the sun and white for the moon. Our sun is the giver of life and the moon gives us tides and is our original keeper of the night. This medicine is so strong it touches everything you can imagine and things that will never be known. Contained within this medicine is spirit searching the universe and touching stars to make them shine. This is where the spirit journey begins and will return over and over again. So, on my hat bands the beginning is usually in the middle.
The exception is this band below which represents perfection and the perfect balance of a split spirit. Split spirit is the story of spirit splitting apart as it begins its journey and coming back together in the end, so it can return to the mystery as one once again. The twin thunder birds are on a dark red background attached to the fire arrow heads and free of the illusion (white) to fly to the stars. Medicine flows through them from both arrows making them strong and balanced.
