The Paul Dyck Plains Indian Buffalo Culture Collection, acquired through the generosity of the Dyck family and additional gifts of the Nielson Family and the Estate of Margaret S. Coe
Two pieces of tanned hide sewn together in slight U shape, appears that there was red ribbon inserted between the two exterior pieces, but only traces on the seam remain visible. A short (1") top flap extends upward from opening, and has two small holes through it and two others equidistant to it on body of bag for a closure of some kind. Recto is decorated with dyed quills, covering the entire piece. Outer border in yellow quill waved with opposite wave in purple, thinner U in cream quill with innermost interior design of purple thunderbird with stylized four point star in yellow, with a top and border wave in purple and cream, all laid inside larger area of red quillwork.
Top of the flap, which lies flat and won't close, is three rows of red quill sections intersected with section of purple and cream intermixed to give a striped effect. Verso is red quills done in thin lines with perimeter outlined and 5 boxes x 4 boxes designated by fine line of red quills.
