Sioux Turtle Dance Staff

Sioux Turtle Dance Staff


The Sioux viewed the turtle as symbolic of Mother Earth and referred to the continent of North America as "Turtle Island". They viewed the hard outer shell, which protects living beings as an analogy to our mother, the earth, also a living entity. The "Turtle Clan" people require a strong base where they can live, develop roots and grow. The Turtle Dance Staff honors this clan and these people. Adorned with 5 inch Turtle Clan rosettes on white doe skin. Brass tacks, brass hawk bells, hand-painted snowy owl feathers, snapping turtle skull, brass spots, fringed white doe skin and ermine skin showing owner holds high rank within the tribe.
