Description

Quiver made from hide with a reinforcing stick on the back attached with hide ties. One side of the quiver is dyed with blue pigment on the lower half and on a decorative band across the middle. The decorative band has six flaps with blue and red designs of corn and geometric shapes, as well as loose fringe. The upper end is rolled back on itself to form a collar. The lower edge of the collar is cut into a repeating pattern of triangles dyed blue with a hole cut out at the upper edge of the collar. A band of red wool flannel is set underneath the rolled back collar. A hide sling strap is attached to the decorative band across the middle.
