A Medicine Hat begins with a dream, a vision, an intention...Your Medicine Hat is a tool for transformation, for the healing of your world. A blessing on your head. This hat is made in collaboration with Hampui Hats whose handcrafted Medicine Hats are designed to be worn as an altar on your head. The brim provides protection for your body, mind, and spirit, and the crown supporting a connection to Source.
Inola means "black fox" in Cherokee, the language spoken on the reservation where this band has been hand beaded. This fedora style hat will give you the Medicine of the Black Fox - the power of keen observation, deep instinct, and intuition to begin to develop the ability to know instantly what will happen next. After observing for a while, you will become aware of a certain predictability in given situations and be able to quickly make your move. Fox medicine teaches the art of Oneness through its understanding of camouflage.
Fox medicine involves adaptability, integration, and swiftness of thought and action. These traits may also include quick decisiveness, and sure-footedness to help you navigate in the physical world. The color black will give you power to persevere and achieve and the one-of-a kind band is will be unique to you.
