BBHC Cody Enterprise column: “Your Museum Matters” – March 1, 2009
From our collection:
Every Plains Indian man needed a bow case and quiver to carry his weapons for hunting and war. This example, made from tanned otter hide, with broad straps and distinctive beadwork, is typical of the ones used by the Crow in the late 1800s.
Basically containers for arrows, quivers appear in all cultures that use bows and arrows or similar weapons. They have different forms depending on whether they were hung from a belt, from a horse saddle, or worn on the back.
As with so many Native American implements, tools, weapons, clothing, housing, and the like, a quiver can be more than functional: It becomes a work of art.
