Pueblo Pottery Kit

Pueblo Pottery Kit
Pueblo Pottery Kit

This Pueblo Pottery Kit teaches you the traditional pottery making methods of the Pueblo peoples. There are several Pueblos in  Southwestern North America.  Pueblo peoples gathered their pottery making materials themselves. These Native American peoples dug and prepared their own clay.  They made their own dyes.  In addition, they made their brushes from yucca leaves.  This kit provides you with everything you need, ready to use.  Each kit contains materials needed to make a 3″ – 6″ Clay Pot. Additionally, the instruction booklet describes several traditional pottery designs for you to try. So, follow the directions to learn how to make a clay pinch pot.  Then decorate the pot with your own design!  The clay in the kit is self-hardening but not waterproof.  So your pot will be for decoration only.

The Pueblo Pottery Kit includes:

  • Clay
  • Paint Powders
  • Yucca Leaves
  • Polishing Stone
  • Fully Illustrated Instruction Booklet

You will also need: water, a paint tray, a towel, and a spoon.

We recommend this kit for ages 8 +.  Adult assistance may be needed to help children with this kit.

Browse our other Kits! The Wandering Bull Native American Trading Post offers Kits for everyone! So you will find everything from Beginner Accessories Kits to Native American Regalia.

For more information, view the Denver Art Museum leaflet on Pueblo Indian Pottery Making HERE!

Moccasins – Antique Spot Beaded

Moccasins - Antique Spot Beaded
Moccasins – Antique Spot Beaded

These Antique Moccasins feature a spot beaded design.  We believe the come from around 1920. The crafter used Braintanned Deerhide and stitched them together with cotton thread. He or she used Periwinkle Blue, Orange and Clear Red Seed Beads for the design. Rawhide soles cover the bottom.

A previous owner wore these moccasins, but they remain in collectible condition. You can see minor bead loss. You will also notice a couple places where the sole has separated from the upper and one spot where someone repaired a hole in the leather.

The lacing around the opening remains, but it is unlaced on the side of one of the moccasins.  The top flaps remain attached to the moccasins.

These moccasins measure nearly 10″ long x 3.25″ wide. They stand 3″ high at the cuff.

Add these antique moccasins to your moccasin or beadwork collection!

Pottery  Antique Clay Figure

Pottery  Antique Clay Figure

This small Antique Clay Figure resembles Native American Rain God statues.  In the early 20th century, the crafter roughly shaped it with natural clay covered with a light colored slip.  He or she added some brown paint marks on the hair (?), around the neck, on the arms and feet and on the object it holds.   The crafter used short incisions for the eyes and mouth with a little shaping for the nose.

The figure sits with straight legs stretched out.  It holds a log-shaped object that may be a container to catch the rain.  Projections from its head may be hair or ears and horns.

You will see that a piece has broken off the top of this figure and chips off the back of one of the head projections and one of the feet.  The left foot is also blackened on the bottom.  Otherwise it is intact and in good condition.

The Figure stands about 3″ tall and 2.75″ across the legs.

About UNACC:

UNACC’s History

Founder Onkwe Tase

Founder Onkwe Tase

Knowing of the impending closure of the Fort Devens Military Base, and armed with a deep passion and concern for the advancement and protection of Native American rights and the preservation of our Native American History and Heritage. Founder Onkwe Tase began the search for the center’s home. He strategically hit selectman’s offices and town meetings in the communities that were to be affected by the base closure and tirelessly solicited over a thousand support signatures. The relentless dedication of many Native Americans, along with support from the general public, enabled UNACC to remain earmarked for the P-5 building on the map of the Devens Re-Use Plan.

This grassroots effort, although passionate, lacked the business, legal and financial backing necessary to play ball with the Federal, State and Defense Department officials and procedures. We stood outside the fort with little chance of moving in. Early in 1994, this major obstacle and challenge was overcome by solidifying UNACC by-laws and the incorporation for our non-profit status. Working with a variety of government organizations including Military officials and cutting through the jungle of red-tape, we successfully produced an occupancy agreement. UNACC moved to the 2nd floor of P-5 and granted LandBanks Marketing Center a 1 year lease of the 1st floor. LandBanks beautifully renovated, donated the construction upgrades and left as agreed in 1 year.

Throughout this entire process, the UNACC Board of Directors and members tirelessly and selflessly volunteered their time and efforts. Many fund-raisers and cultural enrichment programs have been launched to raise awareness and earn operating funds.

We offer Premium Natural Abalone Shells, a beautiful Blue Shell that comes without chips or rough edges.  They have a lovely shine to them, though they are not polished or coated.  You will find both sides smooth and free of barnacles.  They vary in size from 4″ to 6″.

You can see the iridescent mother-of-pearl on the inside of the shell. You can also see the rough spot where the snail was attached to the shell. The shell comes with a line of small holes that allowed the snail to breathe.  The outside of the shell appears rough and bumpy. These are natural products, so expect variations in color and size.

Many people use a natural Shell in Smudging ceremonies to burn Sage or Incense.  Native Americans of the west coast have harvested Abalone for centuries. They consumed the meat and used the shells to make Beads, fishhooks and decorative items.

Club Burl with Buffalo Fur

Native Americans sought out young trees to use their root ends to make clubs. This club burl with buffalo fur comes from a natural tree with a small burl at the root.  The burl looks similar to a face with holes for eyes, a carved mouth, brass spot nose and buffalo hair attached to the top.

The handle has a hole drilled through the handle to add a carrying strap. A previous owner added some red and green coloring.

This club is lightweight. You will find it the perfect accessory because it doesn’t weigh much!

This Club measures approximately 20″ long and just 5″ wide at the widest point across the top.

Wedding Vases Red Clay

Wedding Vases Red Clay
Wedding Vases Red Clay

Our Red Clay Wedding Vases are made by Native American artists.  They etch traditional designs on them and finish them with traditional colors. You will find the artist’s signature on the bottom of each Vase.  These Vases are made with red clay.  The insides are not glazed, so they will not hold liquids.

Several Native American peoples, especially in the Southwest,  have used Wedding vases as part of a marriage ceremony. On a Wedding Vase, one spout represents the husband, the other the wife. The looped handle represents the unity of marriage.  A special beverage was added to the vase and the couple drank from it.  Wedding Vases make a special gift for a new couple.

Our medium vase measures 8″ tall  x 5.5″ at the widest point. The small vase measures 5.5″ tall  x 4.5″ at the widest point. The colors & designs may vary from vase to vase.

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.
