Plateau Native American Corn Husk Bag Umatilla Indian 1880's Nez Perce Yakima:
This is an outstanding hand woven corn husk twine bag from the plateau tribes of the Pacific Northwest. The original owner stated in the 1980's that the bag was made by the Umatilla tribe and was over 100 years old. That would date the bag to around the 1880's and possibly earlier. The item was probably used as a purse. It measures 16 inches by 12.5 inches and is in very nice condition and is very well designed. The colors are bright and looks like it was used very little.
