Dakota or Ojibwe orange flower bag and strap
Description Loom-woven rectangular pouch and long strap with multicolored glass seed beads in geometric designs. Predominant colors are light and dark green, orange, red and pink with rectangular design on the obverse and half-flower design on reverse. 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.
