Navajo 28cm Rawhide Rattle Sunface Design

Hand-crafted and hand-painted by Irene Morgan  who is shown on the tag.


Created in the traditional way from cured animal hide attached to a wooden staff. The rawhide is filled with pebbles and/or sand and sewn shut.

The rattle handle is wrapped with deer hide and decorated with glass beads and fur.


These rattles are very well made, with the head firmly attached to the handle. They have a good sound, an example of which can be heard on the video above.

Although each one will vary slightly the video does give you a rough idea of the sound your rattle will make.

The Sunface symbol is of  Zuni origin but is found across all the South Western tribes. It  is an extremely positive symbol of prosperity, happiness, peace, hope, and joy. It represents stability, continuity and a connection to family and the Earth.


Native American rattles, also known as shakers, play an important part in traditional tribal dance and in ceremony.

They are symbolically made using hide and feathers from the animal kingdom, wood and stones from the plant/earth kingdom and hand painted with traditional symbols from tribal lore or mythology to give them added power.

Rattles are used to hold the rhythm during dance, raise the energy and carry prayers and are often accompanied by a beaten drum.


Native American rattles are also used in shamanic work to call upon the sprits from  other realms for help and guidance.


The sustained use of a rattle can create trance-like states in the user and listeners.


Use them personally when you wish to create a sacred space, raise the energy before spiritual work or to clear your mind before entering a meditative state. Or use purely as an percussion instrument to accompany a musical performance.


The full rattle measures approx 28cm including the tassels and the rattle head measures approx 7cm in diameter.

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