I consider myself an Elk Dreamer. The Lakota saw the elk (hehaka) as having special powers. To dream of an elk meant that you would have “Elk Medicine”. You were considered to have great power. The People would call on you for advise and to heal wounds concerning matters of the heart and emotion.
Elk men were said to have created the first flute; the musical instrument that would play beautiful love songs. To give a women the ivory teeth of the elk meant devotion and strength, as elk ivories do not deteriorate over time.
These simple earrings feature hand carved elk medallions hanging below slender real bone hair pipe sandwiched between two 24 ct. gold seed beads. They measure 3 inches long, and hang from silver plated ear wires.
