To Tlingit shaman inhabiting the northwest shores of North America, the oystercatcher inhabiting the border world between water and land was in parallel with the shaman's role between the human and spirit worlds. The oystercatcher is often depicted on rattles used by Tlingit shaman. These are several of Preston's favorite interpretations of the traditional rattles, which were originally carved from wood.
