Beaded Child’s Robe Reproduction

Beaded Child's Robe Reproduction
Beaded Child’s Robe Reproduction

Exquisite! This One of a Kind Beaded Child’s Robe will become a treasured heirloom! Master Craftsman Andy Bullock created this Reproduction Child’s Robe on White Braintanned Deerskin Leather.  He used a whole Deerhide and kept its original shape.

Andy used Lazy Stitch to apply a variety of bead colors including Pony Trader Blue, Cheyenne Pink, Cobalt Blue, French Transparent Dark Pink, Greasy Yellow, Transparent Green and White Seed Beads. He added Deer Dew Claw Drops threaded with Braintanned Deerskin Leather. To these he added Blue Crow Beads and broken antique Feather Beads.

This Robe is unsmoked Braintanned Leather. You will have Rawhide if it becomes wet.  The back shows discoloration because the leather is not smoked. But you will not see threads from the beadwork because Andy does such fabulous work.

This robe measures 42″ at the widest point and 44″ at the longest point. The beaded design measures 24″ x 19″.

One of a Kind!

Dream Catchers

Dream Catchers

The Legend of Dream Catchers

Traditionally, the Ojibwe construct dream catchers or “dreamcatchers” by stringing sinew strands in a web around a small round or tear-shaped frame of willow. In a way, it is roughly similar to their method for making snowshoe webbing. The resulting dream catcher, hung above the bed, is used as a charm to protect sleeping people, usually children, from nightmares. Continue reading Dream Catchers

Dawnland StoryFest

Dawnland Storyfest

Location: 18 Highlawn Rd Warner NH 03280

Time: 10:00 am to 4:00 pm

Details: Dawnland StoryFest is a warm spot in cold and snowy February and – New Hampshire’s only annual Native American Storytelling Festival. This is the 5th year anniversary for the festival and its first year at the Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum in Warner, NH. Please join us if you love to listen to traditional Native American – and if you’d like to learn more about telling traditional Native American storytelling.

The festival was originally created almost five years ago, by NH storyteller PapaJoe Gaudet, as a showcase for Wampanoag storyteller and elder, Medicine Story. This year, the Dawnland StoryFest moves to its new home and will be dedicated in memory of two wonderful NH Native American storytellers who both passed away in 2018: Medicine Story and Peter “Bearded Turtle” Brodeur.

Come hear experienced Native American storytellers share traditional tales during the heart of the Winter Storytelling Season. For the first time, this year’s featured teller is a woman! Anne Jennison is an award winning storyteller of European and Abenaki descent who has been telling traditional Native American lesson stories for 30 years. Also featured are: Crow HearsCrow, Darlene Kascak, Angela Klingler, Sebastian Lockwood, Papa Joe Gaudet, and Simon Brooks as the MC. In addition to hearing stories, there will also be a discussion that touches on ideas about what Native American stories are appropriate to tell, as well as when, where,why, and how to tell them. There may also be an opportunity for you to share a traditional Native American lesson story, if you have one prepared to share.

The Festival takes place each year on the first Saturday in February, during the heart of the winter storytelling season. In this, its 5th year the Dawnland Storyfest is changing homes. Formerly held at the Mariposa Museum & Cultural Center in Peterborough, NH, starting this year, the Dawnland Storyfest will now be held at the Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum in Warner, NH.

Please note: The Dawnland StoryFest is geared toward adults, including young adults, who are interested in Native American Storytelling traditions. This event is not really suitable for young children as there will be no specifically child-oriented activities – or childcare – provided during this one-day storytelling conference and festival.

Hand Made Dolls

Hand Made Dolls 
Hand Made Dolls

If there is a universal child’s toy, it may well be a doll.  Whether hastily made from scrap material at hand, or painstakingly made to exacting detail, dolls “speak” to our humanity.  At first glance, dolls are simple play-things… suffering the ravages of many other mere “toys”.  However, there are many other reasons dolls are created and decorated for children.  Dolls may also be used to teach children important cultural and educational lessons in dress, hair style, adornment and dexterity.

Some dolls are created for specific purposes or occasions.  Others are made with whimsy and artistic license.  There are no limits to the variety of dolls.  This author is particularly interested in beadwork as a decorative medium.  By making a basic cloth doll body, there are unlimited ways to construct and decorate these miniature personalities.

Navajo Natives create our Classic Dream Catchers.  They make them with natural feathers, imitation sinew, glass beads, metal beads and tin cones. Each Dream Catcher comes with a card explaining the Dream Catcher legend.  The larger Dream Catchers include the artist’s name and tribal affiliation.

The Woodlands Indians say: Hang a Dream Catcher by the window or at the head of your bed. The bad dreams get caught in the web. The good dreams work their way through the hole in the center, rest on the feather like a dew drop, and evaporate to the Great Spirit in the morning sun. The prayer beads on the Dream Catcher trap all the bad dreams that are left on the web. The prayer beads then burn them up.

These Dream Catchers come in three sizes:

  • 2″
  • 4″
  • 5″

Dream Catchers make nice housewarming gifts or special mementos  for children. You may also like our Dreamcatcher Kit!  It comes with everything you need to make a personalized Dreamcatcher!

Our Dance Shawl Fringe is perfect for fringing your own shawls. We sell acetate Chainette Fringe that comes on 3/4 lb to 1 lb. spools.  (Each spool holds 800-1000 yards). You will be able to fringe a standard size woman’s shawl (approx. 60″ x 63″) with one spool of our Fringe.  Our seamstress uses 14″ of fringe doubled over and spaced one finger width apart on the Fabric Shawl Blank.

If you have tried some of our competitor’s fringe, you may find that it unties and kinks because it is too stretchy. You will agree our shawl fringe is easy to work with. Remember, we actually USE our fringe!

History of The Wandering Bull, A Native American Craft StoreWandering Bull Trading Post

The Wandering Bull was started by Paul and Harriett Bullock with a card table at powwows around 1969. With six children, four sets of dance bustles in a VW bus, and a love for our culture, we never stopped growing. As the family became more involved in powwows, the kids encouraged us to develop a small part time business.  These sales enabled us to attend powwows and pay for gasoline, food etc.  Although everything was informal, these were the beginnings of The Wandering Bull.
