Description: 
These jewel-like cases are fine Kiowa versions of the pouches that Plains women hung from their belts to keep their most often used tools at hand. The awl was a multipurpose bone tool (held in the pointed bag); the strike-a-light bag held flint and steel to start a fire (wider bag); and the whetstone sharpened knives.
