Round cloth pouch, spot-stitch decorated with glass seed beads in coiled design. Bag is bound with purple ribbon and features loom-woven strap in geometric designs. Obverse features multicolored coiled bead background with 4-petaled blue flower at center; reverse has pink coiled bead background with blue and green floral motif at center. 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.
