SIOUX PIPE BAG WITH PIPE
Oglala Sioux (museum replica) photographed with pipe
(different design on front and back)
Native American Pipe Bags & Pouches - Cheyenne, Sioux, Arapaho, Crow, etc.,
Native Americans made an incredible variety of pouches for every conceivable purpose. Beaded and or quilled pipe bags were some of the finest items made. Their tobacco was sometimes carried at the bottom of the bag. The pipe bowl was separated when it was carried and a thong drawstring tie was attached to the top of all pipe bags to secure the contents of the bag.
