This handcrafted bird is made from tamaracks carefully woven together. Traditionally utilized as a decoy, the Iroquois tribes also used these tamrack birds as air purifiers by pouring water over them and placing over a fire. The steam would freshen the air in a longhouse. Made in the far North of Canada, this craft requires many hours of work and is becoming a lost art.
