Kiowa Style Tobacco Medicine Bag Celebrating The Horse

A classic from the hands of master artifact maker Pete {Nahatsa} Heflin. This pipe/ tobacco storage bag celebrates the horse, which is a very important animal to many Native American cultures The acquisition of horses by the plains Indians in the early 18th century transformed the lives of most tribes between the Rockies and the Mississippi. Almost overnight they found a much more effective way of hunting the buffalo, the main staple of life in this huge area. They embraced the horseback riding culture enthusiastically. With a good horse under him, a hunter could go faster than a buffalo which gave him an enormous advantage.. Using the horse as a central theme, Pete attached the beadwork in the traditional Lazy- Stitch to the leather. This bag is indicative of the type of masterful craft made by modern Native American people.
