This object has the following keywords:
  • bags - Small, medium, or large-sized soft or rigid receptacles, intended for carrying personal articles and usually used as ladies' costume accessories. A bag is closed in on all sides except at the top, where also it generally can be closed, and usually having handles or straps for carrying on the shoulder or in the hand.
  • bandolier bags - General purpose bags carried by North American Indians with attached shoulder straps worn over the shoulder and across the breast. Usually made of wool, muslin, or buckskin and heavily decorated with beadwork, quillwork, or embroidery. For shoulder belts worn across the breast from which wallets, small bags, or pockets often containing ammunition are sometimes suspended, use "bandoliers."
  • beading - Enrichment consisting of a line of tiny beads; common on silver and furniture.
  • Native American - Typically reserved to refer narrowly to the cultures of the native peoples of the United States and Canada, excluding the Eskimos and Aleuts. For the indigenous peoples of Canada use the term "First Nations." For the broader concept of the cultures of any native peoples of Central America, South America, North America, or the West Indies who are considered to belong to the Mongoloid division of the human species, use "Amerindian (culture)."
  • Ojibwa - Refers to the culture of the Ojibwa, Algonquian-speaking Indians who historically lived along the northern shore of Lake Huron and both shores of Lake Superior from what is now Minnesota to the Turtle Mountains of North Dakota, as well as from southern Saskatchewan to Quebec in Canada. Today, Ojibwa communities exist in several different tribes across the Great Lakes region in the United States and Canada.
