Navajo 4" Painted Medicine Shield

Handcrafted by Navajo Artist Gene George from Sweetwater, Arizona who is shown on the tag.

Made from soft deerskin leather painted with a unique design and decorated with feathers and metal beads.

Traditionally a Medicine Shield would have acted as a warrior’s physical & spiritual protection. ‘Medicine’ means having sacred and powerful energy. It would have been made from cured buffalo rawhide, a really tough material.

Each warrior created their own shield following a vision quest and would incorporate elements that were relevant to them, often relating to their personal power animal - fur, bone etc; painted with symbols and decorated with feathers, shells fabric etc.

Use this mini-shield as a base to personalise with pieces that relate to yourself and your journey.

The pattern may vary  slightly from those shown in the pictures.


Measures approx 10cm diameter and 25cm long excluding the deerskin hanger.

Comes to you wrapped in our signature pale blue tissue paper.


This Navajo product is an authentic  item purchased from a company trading locally on

Navajo Nation land in New Mexico.
