Yanaha means “brave” in Navajo. This bracelet is hand-beaded on a traditional Navajo loom and made with high quality seed beads. After the pattern is arranged on the loom, the beads are sewn onto genuine deerskin lining from a local New Mexico leather company. On average, this bracelet takes over six hours to make and stitch! 

When you purchase an Etkie bracelet, you are directly supporting a female Navajo artisan in New Mexico to earn a living wage and gain confidence and independence to achieve her goals.
