This is a wonderful Etched and Burned in Designed Gourd Whistle from the Ticuna Indians from the Amazon Rain Forest. The cord necklace has a Gourd whistle as it's pendant with a Shark Vertebrae, Bone and Coconut discs on a waxed linen cord. The holes are carved in the gourds for sound. The Tikuna, Indians reside in the Brazilian Amazon rain forest near the borders of Peru, Brazil and Colombia along the Rio Santo Antonio do Ica and Rio Solimones. The Ticuna were one of the first major tribes of the Amazon to be contacted by the early conquistadors. Even with over 400 years of contact, the Ticuna Nation has managed to preserve their personal identity through their native language, traditional religions, rituals, and cultural art forms. They have survived the constant threat of violent extermination and forced integration policies by Western society. This cord can worn by a male or female and now you have necklace that is also a musical instrument.
