This is a horn strap based on a pre 1800 Great Lakes Indian beaded sash. The beaded section is 37 1/4 inches long by 1 5/8 inches wide. With leather tabs on each end the total length is 45 inches not including the 10 inches of brain tanned deer hide laces on each end. I often wonder what the story is in these designs. My guess is that it honors a great leader whos strength held the culture together in a time of crisis. Tecumseh comes to mind. but we will never know. Prices at $120.00 to include shipping. The warp is wool yarn and weft is artificial sinew.
