Crowfoot Collective M A K O Y O O H S O K O Y I (Wolf Trail Ring) - Opal
This ring is named after the Wolf Trail, the Blackfoot name for the Milky Way, our Galaxy. It was created to remind us that help comes in all forms. Friends are all around us, in all shapes. Remember your own strength and resilience when you wear this piece, and remember that sometimes strength means accepting help. Each piece is high vibrational, and is meant to lift you up, to help you find a higher love, a higher path.
This gorgeous ring is set with Ethiopian Opals and White Topaz. The gemstones in the ring are representative of the Wolf Trail Galaxy (the Milky Way)
Makoyiwa, the Wolves, were some of the first Earth Beings to help the Blackfoot.
One winter, when our people were starving, a young man and his family were camped by themselves as they searched for food. The wolves found the family and appeared to them as young men bringing fresh meat to the lodge. The wolves took this family with them, showing the man how to cooperate with other people when he hunted buffalo and other animals.
The wolves introduced the people to the other animals in their world. The human beings learned that animals with hooves and horns were all right to eat, but that animals with paws and claws should be left alone.
The wolves disappeared in the spring, but we still see them in the sky as makoiyohsokoyi. These stars constantly remind us of how we should live together.
Opal is considered a water stone. It can help the wearer to cope with change in all aspects of life. This is especially important in times of transformation or transition, and makes Opal an invaluable energy to hold close to your heart. A stone of love and gentleness, Opal calms turbulent emotions and brings energies of gentle love and kindness to all relationships, including the one we have with ourselves.
White Topaz has a crisp, clear vibration that can help you to manifest dreams and desires. It is wonderful for helping you to dig deep and find your true life goals, and then helping you achieve them.
Paired with the Protection of Mother Moon, this is a high vibrational piece meant to help you find your highest self.
This stunning ring 24k Gold Vermeil. We do not offer re-plating. Because rings are subject to more wear and tear, the plating may eventually rub. We have used a very thick gold plate to ensure our rings wear well. (3X thicker than industry standard).
10% of all proceeds of this piece will be donated to Pacific Wild and their ongoing fight to save the Coastal Wolves of Vancouver Island.
