This pouch was given to me many years ago. I have kept it in a plastic baggie in my jewelry box.
I am Cherokee ( & Italian) and do beadwork, but am afraid to touch this one. I don't want to ruin the value by fixing it.
It is a very soft buckskin bag with intricate beadwork...at least what is left of the beadwork :) Mainly clear beads, maybe silver lined, with a few shiny green and a single red. The outline of the pouch is all white opaque, which are not very uniform.
Hoping to have someone date and maybe identify a tribe?
