Description: 
During the late 19th century, weavers began to create highly decorative cornhusk bags. Bags were embroidered with yarn or beads and proudly carried at important celebratory events. The small size of this bag indicates that it may have held personal items. The image of a bald eagle with a shield on its breast is part of the arms of the United States.
