This Plains Indian Median Bag was made in about 1900 and is in outstanding condition. It was made for a Lessie Adams of Anadarko, Oklahoma by her best friend who was a Plains Indian at an Indian School in Anadarko. Lessie Adams keep all of her Indian bead work wrapped up in blue paper and stored in a trunk until her passing in 1974 at about 90 years of age. I obtained them from her daughter in law some 30 years ago. The bag contained a small piece of brown paper with some type of dried plant inside the bag. This bag look like its new as far as the condition with only light surface dirt and the bead work in outstanding. Hardbrake
