beaded hat band, Thunderbird. This is a Made to Order item HB055
This listing is for a Native American hand beaded hat band that`s Made to Order. The off white ascending thunder bird on the front, is on a brick red background representing the red people it protects. From front to back after the thunder bird are links that tie the bird to its energy and power. The orange and red arrows are life force and strength. The path thats flown has sun above and moon below on the first group and moon above and sun below on the second after the star. The stars (sun on one side and moon on the other) send their medicine out from the dark, picked up by the arrow. When the band is on your hat and the circle completed you will see the medicine wheel form at the back. The red road (arrow shaft) is split separated by the river of life and surrounded by it in the middle of the path, just like our own journey. The size of this band is approx. 23 1/2 inches long and approx. 1 inch wide with suede ends (color may vary due to availability of leather) and leather strips for closure with a wooden bead. The leather strips are left long for you to finish and trim. Glass beads are no longer available.
