Fox Medicine Pouch

 

MedicinePouch

in honour of E’eren Dilgiczeck, the Fox

and his white Brother, the Arctic Fox

Fox Medicine Pouch cropped

This Fox head I found on the Georgian Bay Pow Wow.

It wanted to come home with me.

It is most likely from a ranched Animal, that never really had a life outside a cage or enclosure. By creating this Medicine Pouch I wish to give honour and meaning to its life and also give respect to all Foxes and Fox Spirits everywhere.

The Arctic Fox – Tiriganiarlu  = 

Winter Teacher (Inuktitut) comes down from the Pleiades to teach the people how to be wise and resourceful and how to survive the winter.

In Siberia Ee’ren Dilgiczeck , the Fox, is seen as the Guard at the Eastern Door – warning, iffff a disease spirit (Albi) or another “nasty” is approaching. If Dilgi barks, it is not a good day to be out and about and people make sure, they are close to home.

For the Anishenabe First Nations Wa-guish, the Fox,is known for his swiftness, cleverness camouflage and to always have a smile  and a sparkle in his eyes.

Materials used:

Fox pelt

bone beads

Deer leather = Wawashkeshkeshee the Deer is a Spirit of East, Morning, Future and also for none-violence and female energy

Hand carved bone Thunderbird:

Thunderbird pictographs and petroglyphs exist not only in and among the Native Americans, Also from Siberia to Tibet Thunderbirds were carved into the face of the rock at vision quest sites. they point to visionary journey and Dinosaur eggs were often considered as being Thunderbird eggs. In Tibet we still today see the reverence towards the mighty Khyang Bird and in India he later became Garuda.

Feathers:

I wanted to maintain the white purity of this pouch and so added only white feathers or mostly white feathers. Each kind carries a multitude of auspicious meanings in Native American and also Celtic and Central Siberian tribal cultures. You have:

White Swan feathers:

Seagull Feather

Hawk Feathers

Heron Feather

Petroglyph designs on the inside flap:

Fox from Tamgali, Siberia

Fox from Lakota Ledger art
