Pipe Bags and Stem Holders by Angela Swedberg

These are traditional pipe bags and stem holders. The one on the left is Crow, and the one on the right is Blackfoot. Both are sinew sewn, using primarily antique Italian beads, on brain tanned antelope. The Blackfoot bag is painted using red ocher earth paint, what they use for sacred items. Both of these bags were made for traditional pipe holders. A.S.
