Black and white, red and white, and white. Probably from the same pouch group, just split up.

Group of seven medicine pouches, in three groups (two groups of two and one of three). A solid white pouch with a white pouch with two (red?) stripes, a brown pouch white stripes that turn into white bars with a solid red pouch, a green pouch with white stripes on one side and a checker board pattern on the other side with a solid white pouch, and with a red pouch with a green stripe down the middle and vertical white bars through the red and green areas. All of the pouches have seems on the sides. The pouches that are grouped together are attached with a 6ply z-twisted s-spun chord. No measurements were taken as the object is made up of smaller objects. Color(s): red, white, brown, and green.
