We source our Bison Horns from Saskatchewan Bison Producers and then boil them to sanitize them before crafting them into sound producing wind instruments. Various kinds of animal horns have been crafted in this manner since ancient times. Animal horn "trumpets" have been used to in battles to signal coordinated movement. They have been used to announce the arrival of royalty and dignitaries. They have been used to call people to assemble. They have been used even in the Bible, in sacred ceremonies such as when making a sacred oath and calls to repentance.
In the Bible, an animal horn trumpet was called a Shofar (shofarot-plural) and were traditionally made from a ram's horn but other more exotic kinds of animal horns have also been used. By the way, it was the sounding of the shofarot that helped bring the walls of Jericho down in the ancient Bible story!
Nowadays, shofarot are used in some churches, synagogues and other religious settings and they can also be used in non-religious settings such as as noise-makers when cheering at sporting events - like a "VUVUZELA" but with CLASS: SASKATCHEWAN STYLE! Some people even use them on the farm to call everybody in for dinner!
NOTE: Our Vuvuzelas are less expensive than our Shofars because they do not meet the high standards required for our "kosher" shofars.
Some of our Shofarot we craft in a way so that they are
for B'Nei Noah
NOTE: Due to an unfortunate incident with a certain "golden calf", Jewish law prevents Jewish people from sounding a Bison Shofar during Yom Teruah / Rosh Hashanah but there is no prohibition against a Jewish person sounding a Bison Shofar at other times.
