Dakota or Ojibwe diamond design pouch
Description Loom-woven rectangular pouch, featuring a geometric design in glass and seed beads; predominant colors are brown, orange, blue, red, and green, on white bead background. Opening is bound with peach ribbon with zigzag spot-stitch bead border in pink and steel cut seed beads. Strap is loom-woven in geometric design with white and green beads. 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.
