The Wolf You Feed Cuff is inspired by the Story of the Wolf You Feed. It is a story of the duality of humanity. Our handcrafted copper cuff is engraved with the Cherokee words for Wolf You Feed in the Cherokee syllabary.
MADE TO ORDER
There is a story that goes like this.
An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. “A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy.
“It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.”
“The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.
The same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.”
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”
The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”
Sequoyah created the Cherokee syllabary. Prior to Sequoyah, Cherokee was an oral language. Within a few months of introducing the script, the tribe was literate. Books were translated into Cherokee and tribes members were writing and reading.
