Along with the horseshoe, the rabbit's foot, and the four-leaf clover, the billiken is one of America's favorite good-luck pieces. Those who think it is only an Alaskan souvenir made by Eskimo carvers will be surprised to learn that it originated in Kansas City, Missouri—not Alaska—and that it is still being made in media other than ivory elsewhere in the world.
by Dorothy Jean Ray
The Billiken is considered Alaska's good luck charm and first appeared around 1909. Billikens come in many different sizes and are crafted from various materials. The favorite medium is ancient walrus ivory, much of it thousands of years old, but can also be made from moose antler, jade, caribou antler, stellar sea cow rib bone, and soapstone. Billikens come in many forms such as pendants, earrings, key chains, and larger self-standing show pieces.
For your billiken to bring you luck, always remember this "billiken charm".
Rub his tummy, tickle his toes, good luck follows wherever he goes. As a blues chaser he's a honey, for good luck, just rub his tummy.
