Lanyard - Medicine Turtle
Designed by Odawa-Pottawatomi Artist James Jacko.
The Turtle is sacred in the indigenous culture. It carries the four colours of the medicine wheel, symbolizing important elements and can be different depending on the tribe. The seven circles represent the seven teachings of our people, and inside each circle is a bird that delivers the message of the creator.
Lanyards can be used for hanging masks, badges or keys around the neck. They are 78cm long and have clips on both ends.
