    Native American Medicine Bags & Pouches

    Native American medicine bags continue to be a popular part of Native life. Historically women were the makers of American Indian pouches. Bags called Parfleche bags, rigid rawhide and soft tanned leather medicine bags were probably the most popular. Leather medicine pouches made with soft deer hide buckskin, elk or buffalo have become the most prevalent among American Indians. Traditional brain tanned bags are made using a special smoke process, labor intensive, they are highly prized.
