One of a pair of large, elaborately decorated buckskin bags, possibly saddlebags. The bags have matching decorations made from feathers, horsehair, quill, and seed beads. The lids and sides of each bag have rectangular strips of geometric beadwork lined with horsehair tassels, which are fastened with metal. There are rows of red quill running widthwise across the front of each bag, and six perpendicular rows of dyed red feathers running from top to bottom.
