Three or more pieces of hide made into long triangle shape, seamed on both sides, beaded/quilled panel inserted, and a small top portion, with narrow opening that is more recent repair with new hide string as drawstring, and appears machine stitched don hem with black cotton thread. Panel is outlined in glass seed beads in 3/8" W border majority white with small boxes interspersed of dark blue, red white heart, and green beads. The center of the panel is 13 horizontal single rows of red dyed quills with center boxes of cream outside with blue squares that form a large V pattern vertically. Bottom section is 2"L rawhide slats quill wrapped in red majority with six (6) long vertical boxes of cream with single purple vertical line.
