In Cherokee Culture Medicine Pouches are extremely sacred and special. When worn they provide spiritual protection to it’s owner. The medicine pouch usually contains tobacco or the four traditional medicines; tobacco, sweet grass, sage, and cedar. A medicine pouch may also contain a particular token that is special or sacred to the person who owns the medicine pouch.

These will be made of leather and all materials will be provided. We just need you to show up and bring your personal moxie! We know you will be ᎠᎵᎮᎵᏍᏗ a-li-he-li-sdi (glad) you did!
