Description
"Rabbit's foot. 1 1/2 inches long, this rabbit's foot charm is in the form of a little Indian man in headdress. Buckskin ties are attached to secure the good luck piece to the wearer or another article. The Plains Indians believe that if you carry a rabbit's foot, it will being you good luck. I (Cleora Helbing) was given many, but I always gave them to other people who were interested in having them. In storage some of my most beautiful ones had the fur eaten off them, so I had to burn them." 2007 - The rabbit's foot cannot be seen thought the beads.
