Michelle Meister and Luke Martinez love making drums, Rattles and Sacred Art. 

When they began their business, they were homeless, living in and working from a van. Michelle says, “It’s what got me off the streets”.

After working from home for many years, they opened a workshop and retail space last September. Michelle has plans to resume her career in teaching ancient skills very soon.

From Michelle and Luck’s Etsy Bio.

“Our partnership carries many different cultural lines from both Europe and North America. In our journey together, we have realized that every person comes from indigenous ancestors and that we are all native to our Mother Earth…”

Here are some of Michelle and Luke’s creations.
