Plains Pipe Bag

Filed under: Item of the Day — Jason Onerheim @ 12:01 am

A Plains, possibly Lakota or Dakota, tobacco pouch with bead and quillwork. The pouch reportedly was a gift from the Lakota chief Sitting Bull to Indian agent Major J. M. Stone, but may also have been used by Yankton Dakota in the vicinity of Yankton, South Dakota, where the pouch was ultimately collected. Made in the late 19th century.
