Report by R. Conn (1978) was referenced to identify this object.
During the late 19th century, delicate design selements--thin lines, forks, and terraces--began to appear in Sioux beadwork. THese motifs can be traced to the Caucasian rugs in the possession of white settlers who passed throuh Sioux territory. In addition to new design influences, traditional quillwork continued.
