Ojibwe loom-woven bag and strap
Description Loom-woven rectangular pouch made with multicolored glass seed beads in floral designs. Loom-woven strap is in green and white bead geometric designs. Bag opening is bound with peach ribbon featuring a pink and steel cut seed bead zigzag border. While it's certainly possible this object was collected among the Dakota, the style in which it was made strongly indicates its Anishinaabe origin. Possibly made for sale.
