The mighty Bison or "Tatanka" are held in high regard by the Lakota people. Coffee/tea mug. white stoneware clay, Shino glaze with original national archived photo fired and embedded for decoration. 12oz, 4.25”H x 3.”W diameter at the mouth, dishwasher and food safe.
Native American tribes have had a cultural and spiritual connections to the American bison and they were highly respected for its nourishment, tools, clothing and shelter. Bison were an integral part of traditional tribal society and they would frequently take part in ceremonies to honor their sacrifice. Sioux and other tribes took part in the "Buffalo Dance" to honor them before their hunt.
Would make a great gift for that special someone.
