Ring and Pin Game. Four "rings" in the shape of cones; a piece of rawhide is laced through a hole in the top of each cone and tied to the pin which is made out of bone. The rawhide is knotted at the other end, so that the rings cannot fall off. A piece of fur is sewn onto the knot. The rings are made from wood.
