Saturdays for Kids: Parfleche Bags
Many Plains Indian tribes were nomadic – traveling the Great Plains on horseback and on foot. A common item used for packing was the parfleche bag. Made from rawhide, these durable storage bags protected a variety of items. Create your own parfleche bag and then use a special Gallery Hunt & Find to locate different bags from Plains Indians. Available while supplies last. Free for children and accompanying adults.
