Man has always music and sought out ways to make it. Rattles have been used throughout the world to help keep rhythm during tribal dances and ceremonies.  Native American rattles may date back to historic times.  They were the perfect accompaniment to Native American ceremonies, which often included dancing.  The rhythm the rattle helps keep during the dance is unforgettable – something that resonates to the very soul, helping make the ceremony a spiritual experience.    The Plains tribes had an abundance of rawhide, which they used to shape a container for their rattles.  Tribes of the Southwest used gourds and even others used turtle shells, horns, or anything that would hold the insides of the Native American rattle – seed, rocks, shells.  It was those items that gave the rattle its rattle sound.  This rattle is made of rawhide, feathers, bead work.  It measures:
