Pacific NW Native American Indian Shaman's Oyster Catcher rattle hand carved
In northern Northwest Coast mythology, Raven is the powerful figure who transforms the world. Raven rattles conventionally depict a complex scene in which a human reclines on the back of a raven while his tongue connects with the tongue of a frog. Meanwhile, a second bird’s head, formed from the raven’s tail, holds the man. High-ranking men carried these rattles with the scene inverted as they danced ceremoniously. The raven rattle was a traditional part of the paraphernalia of a dancing chief, which also included an elaborate headdress, a robe, an apron fringed with rattling pendants, and leggings. In use, the rattle was often held belly up in the dancer’s extended hand and shaken rapidly and continuously throughout the dance. This rattle is a reproduction of a mid-1880s original from the Tlingit tribe. The original is at the San Diego, California, Museum of Man Archaeology, Ethnology & Anthropology. It was made by a member of the Tlingit tribe, date unknown. The original rattle is featured a book titled In the Spirit of Mother Earth – Nature in Native American Art. The shamans rattle was important during ceremonial dances or curing rituals. This raven rattle belonged to a Tlingit shaman who used it to call upon his personal guardian spirit. On the birds back is a reclining human figure with mask and a birds head; the humans tongue is held in the birds beak. This rattle was used during the winter lao laxa dance. Among the Northwest Coast tribes the raven was the one that created the world and put people and animals upon it.
