Zuni Jewelry
Smallest Strand: 19"

In his book Zuni Fetishes & Carvings, author Kent McManis references George Haloo CheeChee as one of the most important figures in the Zuni fetish-carving world.  George started carving in the 1930s and was best known for his fetish necklaces, which are distinguished by the slightly turned animal heads.  Because of his unusual name, George was often referred to by numerous variations of his moniker.  With all of George's fetish necklaces, he carved the birds while someone else provided the heshi and strung them into a necklace, which is the case with this piece. George passed-away in 1983, and since then, his fetishes have become extremely collectible.

Zuni Fetishes

Navajo fetishes represent a specific area of Navajo art and culture, often misunderstood and sometimes misrepresented.  It is assumed by many that Navajo fetishes exist for purely commercial reasons.   There is, however, a tradition of fetish use by Navajo people, either as part of personal pollen sacks carried by individuals or as part of a jish, the sacred bundles used by Navajo medicine people.
