Bandolier bags come from Woodlands tribes like the Ojibwe, and can include glass seed beads, spot stitching and woven straps.

Pipe bags are often from Plains tribes and serve as holders for sacred ceremonial pipes. In the Pacific Northwest octopus or finger bags have intricately decorated ‘fingers’ hanging from the bottom of the bag.

Native America Calling will explore the utility and decoration of Native bags. We’ll also hear from bag makers about their craft and passion for the things they carry.
