Choosing your medicines, creating your bundle and using your bundle are all very personal movements.
Your bundle consists of what is important to you in order that you walk a good path and maintain spiritual, physical, mental and emotional health.
You must carry knowledge of why and how you use your feather or bundle - if you don't, your intentions will not be clear. While there are many theories that come with Indigenous ways of knowing, I can only share with you what I have learned from Elders and Knowledge Keepers.
There are 3 styles and several colours of Feather Bundles to choose from...
choose your medicines and colours when you order.
When asking Dawn to wrap your feather bundle, you will have your choice of:
- medicines you want to carry - (assistance is available).
- Bundle Size: "Tobacco" (double hide wrap), "Cedar" (single hide wrap) and "Sage" (smaller, single wrap).
- hide colour (selection varies based on availability): brown, gold, white, black.
- tie and/or bead colour: black, white, brown, beige, navy, yellow, purple, pink.
*Beads used for bundles are wood and come in limited colours. Dawn will select the wooden beads that match your bundle. If you prefer brightly coloured beads (pink, blue, purple), they will be plastic beads. You must request these separately. Preference is to make your bundle from entirely organic matter.
*I will match the feathers according to the medicines that apply to you and your situation. Please respect that I cannot combine owl with high fliers or other combinations that are not in my teachings. Trust me to create a bundle specifically for you.
These bundles are often very large. An average bundle is up to 24" from top of the feather to bottom of fringe. Shipping costs reflect long box size.

A note from Dawn:
Feathers come to me...and I to them. All my life I have protected feathers and taught Bird Medicines. The feathers are not mine to keep, they carry their own spirit. They are for sharing and that is my only purpose.
Ordering feathers reflects the work you think I've put into them - it does not put a value on the feathers.
Beaded Feathers are also an option. They are much heavier and each glass bead is sewn on individually and with good mind. Beaded feathers take much longer to make and it may be a few weeks before I can ship to you but it is well worth it. Of course, like any bundle, the medicines (feathers) it carries is up to you.
