Okama Mode- Mountain Okama

Handmade, ethically sourced tribal Okama.

The Okama is a tradition of women in the Embera Tribe. They receive their first Okama when they receive their first month. The Okama is the path that runs around the neck, and its function is to protect the woman's heart, empower her, and to highlight her beauty.

The waves of the Okamas are full of ancestral wisdom. It is a tradition that passes from mothers and grandmothers to daughters. Every Okama tells a story; this one is connected to the mountain, For indigenous tribes around the world, the mountain is a sacred place.

The name of the tribe we work with is Embera Chami, the meaning of the name is: “the people of the mountain and the corn”.

In many tribes around America, there are rituals connected with the mountain, where the Indians go up to ask for answers, to offer offerings and to be closer to the divine. The mountains are also very important because in there the rivers are born.

It's a good amulet for security and perspective
