Bear, Eagle, Sodalite Bone, White Coral, Men, Woman, Pendant Necklace
This Cheyenne Bear Eagle Dance pendant is hand carved with great precision from buffalo bone and it has exceptional details in the Grizzly Bear head and in the Eagle. The buffalo bone was antiqued and it has a slight tint of blue and it will last a lifetime, it has beautiful texture, color and depth. The pendant is beautifully crafted, very detailed and set in an oxidized repousse style setting to highlight the design. The pendant measures an impressive 3.5 inches in length and 1.25 inches in width. I paired the pendant with a strand of 8mm Sodalite from the mines of the Western Down Region of Queensland, Australia. The Sodalite gemstones have all the shades of blue from light blue to deep royal-blue, and from grayish-blue to violet and is veined with the typical white marking. The stone is beautifully cut in round shape and polished to a glossy finish.

To add visual appeal I added 8mm White Coral disks, which are a creamy white. The stones pair beautifully with the pendant and are a graceful counterpart. Each stone is complemented by an antique silver spacer, which allow the Sodalite to be viewed more clearly and add structure and design interest. The necklace is finished with an antique silver S hook clasp. The piece is 19 inches in length and has an additional 4 inches chain extender.

A one-of-a-kind necklace you will be proud to own! An original creation by Gray Wolf Collections.

The special powers of the grizzly itself were celebrated each year by Native American tribes that practiced the Bear Dance. Practiced by many tribes in western North America, at its core lay the belief that Native Americans are grizzlies in human form. These "grizzlies shaped like men" would perform the ritual dance each spring to rouse their furry relatives from hibernation. As preparations for the Bear Dance commenced, it was believed that spirit messengers traveled from bear den to bear den, gently coaxing the snoozing inhabitants from their slumber. With the ceremony underway, the loud chanting of the singers, the relentless pounding of the drummers and the violent stomping of the dancers fully awakened the groggy grizzlies. These Native Americans tribes believed they would change back into bears upon death. As such, the dance had a second purpose, which was to send messages to deceased loved ones.

Furthermore, part of the hope was that, in return for the wakeup call, the grizzlies would use their supernatural powers to help the tribe. It was believed that in addition to great wisdom, grizzlies possessed immortal invulnerability, healing powers and that they knew the secrets of medicinal herbs. It is easy to see where such beliefs originated grizzlies eat a broad array of plants, berries and roots and are incredibly difficult to kill with weapons such as spears or hand axes. In fact, to fell a grizzly was considered one of the most honored and revered feats among some Native American tribes.. Most Native American Indian cultures believe the bear has spiritual powers, even today there are those who believe wearing a bear necklace is good medicine, protection, and strength for the person wearing it.

The Native American tribes that perform the Eagle dance believe that the eagle has the theoretical ability to move about between heaven and earth. In times gone by, the Native Americans have believed that the eagle has supernatural powers. Also, these Native American tribes believe that the eagle has the power to control rain and thunder. Therefore, the Eagle dance originated as a result of this figurative meaning. The Native American tribes performed the Eagle dance when there was a need for divine intervention. Historically, the Native Americans performed the dance for a variety of reasons, including friendship creation and curing a sickness. They traditionally believed that the eagle has the supernatural power to transport prayers to the gods.

The Native Americans believe that the eagle symbolizes wisdom, strength and power. Some tribes believe that the eagle's flight signifies the passage of the sun's movements.

Eagle's feathers are sacred, especially the Golden Eagle and Bald Eagle. Therefore, it is a privilege to wear the eagle's feathers. Also, these Native American tribes believe that the eagle's feathers should never touch the ground. Moreover, the eagle's feathers are used as object decorations in the eagle dance ceremonies. Visually, everything about the eagle's appearance is sharp.

This prompts our deeper minds to hone our thoughts and skills. The eagle commands us to tailor our intelligence and talents in a form that best suits our needs. We all have inner abilities, but when the eagle shows up - it's a clear sign it's time to use these abilities in a laser-like fashion to bring about focused change in our lives.
