Loom-beaded bandolier bag, Potawatomi.
This bandolier bag features the same pattern on the strap as well as the body of the bag; other bags, like yesterday’s example, include one pattern or motif on the strap and a dramatically different pattern on the bag body.
According to the records of the Milwaukee Public Museum, this bag was donated to the Museum by Odelia Abel and was collected by her father, H. L. Mumm, who operated the “Indian Trading Post” in Tomahawk, Wisconsin in the early 20th century.
