Sapling & Flint
During the foundation of the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) Confederacy, the first Clanmother, Tsikónsase, used the antlers of a buck to “crown” the first Confederacy Chiefs to represent them as Leaders; the symbolism is that they are prepared to lay down their lives for their People as a buck would for the doe & his children. To this day, a Condoled Chief is identified by the antlers protruding from his Kahstówa (headdress). The deer is also a clan among the Haudenosaunee people.
ABOUT THE PRODUCT: The pendant is solid sterling silver and is 1.5 inches in length. Includes a complimentary 20 inch sterling silver chain.
