Object: Woman's necklace - blue, black and white glass globular beads with rawhide dividers, brown cloth tassles at bottom. Card was attached to necklace with the following information: "Indian Princess' Banner Beads are from Persia. Used as weapon of defense. A lash worn as a banner around the neck of the Chief's daughter. When used as a lash it leaves an indelible mark. The beads are strung in numbers of five, or five and ten; that shows the Christian influence because it should not be made in five or ten, neither four nor six." | NA.203.42.JPG | na.203.42.jpg | necklace | globular | Tradecloth | brown | Beads | glass | animal hide | Northern Plains
