This beaded and quilled bag was once used to hold tobacco. It was donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2006. The bag was possibly made of moose hide and shows a Siouxian design popular in the late 19th- to early 20th-centuries. White, green, blue and navy colored beads are used in addition to porcupine quills dyed red, yellow and purple. The bag is edges on three sides with fringe and blue beads.
