Yankton Lakota pipe bag
Description Buckskin tobacco pouch has strips of rawhide attached that are covered with quillwork. Beadwork and vertical strips of rawhide fringe decorate its surface. The pouch reportedly was a gift from the Lakota chief Sitting Bull to Indian agent Major J. M. Stone, but may also have been used by Yankton Dakota in the vicinity of Yankton, South Dakota, where the pouch was ultimately collected.
