DESCRIPTION

A pipe bag or tobacco bag is a common item used by some Native American ceremonial people. A pipe bag may be used to carry a sacred pipe, such as a Chanunpa.

The narrow sleeve on this tobacco bag held a pipe’s wood stem. A woman embellished it with stylized beadwork, perhaps to suggest the pipe’s role in transmitting sacred smoke and prayer. - MET
