Bannock Beaded Bag
This is a "U" shaped double sided beaded bag with classic Bannock-Shoshone abstract floral designs. The front panel is fully beaded with the design elements accentuated by the white beaded background. The beaded designs on the back side are beaded on the hide without a beaded background. Each of the design elements on the front side are outlined by two concentric lines of beads, each of a different color. The designs on the back side have a single outlining of beads. On the front side the white background is contoured between the main design elements . The bag passed down within a local Oregon family with an old tag that said "Bannock Fort Hall".
