Some items we collect are more modern however still as sought after, these pieces can be anything from intricately carved Hopi kachinas that still adhere to a method of craft dating back to over 100 years ago, to incredibly detailed, one of a kind Jewellery with unique and symbolic designs.
Native American Kachina dolls (Katsina) are traditionally small wooden figures, hand carved from cottonwood roots and painted with natural earth pigments. The term Katsina has three translations; One of more than 300 spiritual beings; a society of spiritual singers and dancers; and small wooden figures also called Tihu. The original purpose of the Kachina dolls was to educate Hopi children about their ancestral religious traditions stretching back over a thousand years ago. Katchina dolls, traditionally carved by the Hopi tribe only, are now commonly crafted by many tribes including the Navajo and Zuni bringing a beautiful variation and style to the spiritual art of creating Kachina. All featured Kachina dolls are hand made in America by the Native peoples, most are written on the base with the Kachina dolls name, artist signature and their tribal number. Kachina are considered works of art and in purchasing these you help allow Native Americans to continue to be employed within their trade.
High Spirits Native American Flutes are based on the minor pentatonic scale when used as a five hole, when the sixth hole under the leather tie is exposed the flute will play the relative major key in both the Diatonic and Chromatic scales. High Spirits Native American softwood flutes such as cedar have a fine balance between warmth and clarity, the hardwoods such as walnut and birch are very durable and have a bright clear voice.

Whether you are a complete beginner or an advanced musician there's a flute for all tastes and abilities within the High Spirits range, all flutes are genuine Native American made and come with a free instructional audio CD.
Traditionally, incense plays an important role in ritual purification, often referred to as ‘smudging’. The incense smoke is used to ‘wash’ away negative energies and emotions, thus cleansing the atmosphere. Likewise, incense is also used to purify the hearts and minds of the participants prior to sacred ceremonies, meditations and rituals, many incenses are mixed with resins. We also have a wide range of organic herbs from sustainably harvested sources. Plants nourish and feed us, add spice to our life, bestow health and beauty, scent and colour and brighten our days. Our herbal range includes dried herbs, tinctures, teas and smokes. We provide alternatives to tobacco too and for people who enjoy experimenting with herbs for pleasure, contemplation, or ritual purposes. Whilst herbs can be rolled into cigarettes the easiest and most effective method is to smoke them from a pipe.
