Plains Cree pipe bag
Description Buckskin pouch is beaded at the base and at the top edge. The lower section of the pouch is sewn with vertical rawhide strips that have quillwork on them. A single bead separates each strip. The pouch has both utilitarian and ornamental thongs that are wrapped with quill and terminate in metal jingle cones that have horsehair projecting from the larger end. The beadwork and general shape of the bag indicate its origin with the Plains Cree.
