Such a beautiful animal, the elk is the largest species within the deer family in North America. The history of elk in North America is evident in petroglyphs that were carved into cliffs by Anasazi Indians of the southwestern United States hundreds of years ago. Elk were of great importance to many cultures and played a spiritual role in their society
Elk hides have been used for thousands of years in North America and Asia for tee pee coverings, blankets, clothing and footwear. They say most modern day uses of elk hides or leather will be more decorative and used as decorations, but elk skin shoes and boots still remain popular.
