Description A Dakota buckskin quiver reportedly used during the Battle of Little Bighorn in 1876. A beadwork panel consisting of brown-bordered yellow rectangles on a white bead background decorates the top of the quiver just below its opening, with the remains of buckskin fringe lining its bottom edge. An identical beaded design borders the bottom of the quiver, and fringe projects from its bottom seam. A fringed flap closes over the top opening.
