James Jacko Medicine Turtle Pin
Designed by Odawa-Pottawatomi Artist James Jacko.
The Turtle is sacred in the indigenous culture. It carries the four colours of the medicine wheel, symbolizing important elements and can be different depending on the tribe. The seven circles represent the seven teachings of our people, and inside each circle is a bird that delivers the message of the creator.
Pins are made with die-casted zinc alloy and dimensions are within 3cm x 3cm.
They can be attached to fabric with the pin and clutch mechanism on the back.
