Ojibwe beaded belt
Description Loom-woven beaded belt with fabric backing and a double hook-and-eye closure. The belt features an alternating blue and red floral motif on a clear beaded ground with a column of black beads arranged in circles at the center. Donated to the Daughters of the American Revolution, Sibley House Association, 1939.
A stitched (not loomed) belt composed of glass beads in pink, red, light blue, dark blue, black and clear in a repeating pattern of leaves on a neutral-colored cotton backing. Hook and eye closures. While it's certainly possible this object was collected among the Dakota, the style in which it was made strongly indicates its Anishinaabe origin.
