This is one of the most important and historic items from the Hunkpapa Lakota Native American Indian tribe owned by Chief Loud Voiced Hawk. The piece is a Canloguha (a tobacco/ceremonial pouch combination) hand carved by Chief Loud Voiced Hawk. The piece was examined and authenticated by renowned Togia language and carving expert, Wendell Grangaard of The Guns of History, Inc. The piece shows Loud Voiced Hawk’s name carved in Togia on the side of the lid. On the face of the Canloguha Loud Voiced Hawk carved a story about a wocekiye (prayer) wahosiyapi-upijata (swallow sent with a message), cekiya (to pray to) Wakinyan (Thunderbird). The inside of the lid is the band mark of the Kiglashka or “they tie their own” of the band Chief Loud Voiced Hawk. On the bottom side of the Canloguha is the Togia for Chief. The bottom compartment used for holding the ceremonial powder of hanble (to obtain visions). In the main body was where canli (tobacco) and cansasa (dried, ground bark or the red willow) was stored. In 1851 Loud Voiced Hawk, the Hunkpapa leader was made a shirt-wearer by the Hunkpapa council and three other leaders. He was given the right to wear the ceremonial hair-fringed buckskin shirt which made him the band leader of the Kiglashka band. At Fort Pierre Conference of 1856, General William S. Harney gave Bear Rib authority to appoint nine chiefs to be a part of the council to represent the Lakota Nation in the negotiations with the U.S. Gov’t. Loud Voiced Hawk was one of the nine council members and he was present in 1869 (and voted yes) when the council made Sitting Bull the Supreme Chief of the Sioux Confederation. This piece will be mentioned and pictured in the upcoming book by Wendell Grangaard about Black Shawl Woman, wife of Chief Crazy Horse. This is the most important and historic Canloguha Tobacco Ceremonial box ever made available for sale and is truly a historic piece of the Hunkpapa Lakota Sioux tribe. The piece was initially estimated at $30,000 to $40,000 by Mr. Grangaard, but his formal appraisal valued the piece at $18,000 to $25,000. Wendell believed this piece to be of significant value and truly a museum piece. The wooden box area measures 3 1/8”L x 2”W x 1.25”D, with the trade clothe cord the piece is 8.5”L. The piece includes the entire detailed information along with three illustrations explaining the Togia language markings, the appraisal, and other paperwork.
