Shaman's Spirit Bag or Medicine Bundle
May 6, 6:00 - 9:00pm
The mountains, I become a part of it…
The herbs, the fir tree, I become a part of it.
The morning mists, the clouds, the gathering waters, I become a part of it.
The wilderness, the dew drops, the pollen…I become a part of it.
The Shaman's Spirit bag or medicine bundle is a container for items believed to protect or give spiritual powers to its owner. Varying in size, it could be small enough to wear around the neck or it could be a large bag with a long strap called a “bandolier.” The size of the bag is determined by how many items need to be carried.
In historic times, medicine men and shamans generally carried a large medicine bundle that could hold numerous items such as seeds, herbs, pine cones, grass, animal teeth or claws, horse hair, tobacco, beads, arrowheads or bones, rattles, animal furs, special stones, or anything that meant something of Spiritual significance to the owner. Normally these objects of power would be a memento of a Spiritual experience in the shamans life.
