The decorated buckskin pouch is most likely from the Upper Northern Plains region. It was recovered from a box of objects that was almost discarded at UND, and rescued by former American Indian Studies Department secretary, Merry Claymore Ketterling. It is illustrated in the book Storytelling Time: Native North America Art from the Collections at the University of North Dakota (Hudson Hills Press, 2010).
