10kt Gold Turtle Rattle Pendant


Kanyáhten Ohstá:wen in the Mohawk language, the Turtle Rattle is a quintessential Haudenosaunee instrument. As a tool of Ratóris, its very origin is older than Creation and comes out when Ronatóris come to dance, visit, do medicine for the people and clean our houses. The Haudenosaunee Turtle Rattle is used in most ceremonies across our longhouse ceremonial calendar; putting through songs that share our memories of the Skyworld.


This pendant is approx. 3gm (including the 10kt gold chain) and one inch in length. It includes a 20inch 10kt gold chain. All our products are proudly made in our studio in the village of Ohswé:ken!


-Please note that our gold products are made-to-order. If your purchase is time-sensitive, please allot time for us to create your unique piece.
