Hennepin History Museum
Minneapolis, MN
Share this event:


Retired curator Marcia G. Anderson will talk about her book A Bag Worth A Pony: The Art of the Ojibwe Bandolier Bag. The result of thirty years of study, Marcia shares what she learned from the talented bead artists who keep the form alive, from historical records, and from the bags themselves in the profusely illustrated book.
Bandolier bags, or gashkibidaaganagthe large, heavily beaded shoulder bags made and worn by several North American Indian tribes around the Great Lakesare prized cultural icons here and around the world. From the 1870s to the present day, Ojibwe bead artists of Minnesota have been especially regarded for their lively, creative designs. Neighboring Dakota people would trade a pony for a beautiful beaded bag. Marcia examines the history, forms, structure, and motifs of the bags, giving readers the tools to understand a bags makeup and meaning.
