This is an early 1900's Plaines Indian hand made knife with a beaded leather sheath. The beads are trade beads and the beadwork is not the best. This may have been someones first attempt at doing beadwork. The handle is dried leather stitched together with sinew, while the blade was shaped from a piece of metal and then sharpened.
