This Beaded Braided Prayer Fan is handmade by a Cherokee, the beading is unique to him and the sacred path he walks. Prayer Fans are commonly given as a gift to heal the heart. Just as ancient Americans used the feathers to send prayers to the heavens and draw healing power from the sky, and so with all sincerity we hope such healing goes with you with every footstep. Feathers, beads, leather and fur will vary. Certificate of Authenticity is included.
