Welcome to the Chief Dodge Artifacts page where Native American artists display their recreations of traditional hunting, ceremonial, and daily use items. Yesterday's tools become today's works of art in their talented hands. Past generations of Native American peoples were unequaled in their use of and respect for the natural resources of their lands.

Prayers were given and ceremonies observed as they fashioned bone, clay, stone, leather and other elements into tools, hunting weapons, ceremonial, and utilitarian household items. And even now, each of the artifacts sold here at Chief Dodge is entirely handcrafted using traditional methods and respectfully gathered materials.

Yesterday's tools are today's works of art as the artists faithfully re-create the ceremonial shields, bows and arrows, lances, headdresses, dreamcatchers and cradleboards used by our ancestors.

Please note: items shown on this page are not to scale.
