Xnaaly

Name: Xnaaly
Origin: United States
Class: Idiophone
Category: Shaker

Description: A 'dipper gourd' also used as a shaker for accompaniment in music circles. This particular shaker was made by the Xalychidom (~1830) Indian tribe (also known as a tribe of the Maricopa people). They were based mostly in Arizona. The name Xalychidom means 'living towards the water'. This gourd could be used as cups, scoops, containers, rattles, and other uses. The seeds inside the rattle are harvested from palm trees, and dried for 3-4 months. Then they are carefully separated from the stock, cleaned, and placed in the prepared gourds. The gourds are then painted usually red and black. There was generally no symbolism of religious meanings to the colors. They were simply picked due to the local pigments and dyes in the area from rocks, sands, berries, etc. A very special thanks to Ron Carlos from the Xalychidom tribe for providing this information.
