Ojibwe Jacket

A deerskin jacket purchased by the staff of Camp Kamaji at Cass Lake, Minnesota, from a local Ojibwe craftsperson, likely Leech Lake Band. The coat is decorated with appliqu├ęs of cut glass beads sewn to bands of leather that are edged with cotton cloth; the back yoke is constructed in a similar manner. Probably from the 1930s.
