Learn about Ojibwe culture, explore nature for inspiration, and then personalize your very own shoulder bag. In Ojibwe culture, the bandolier bag is an elaborately beaded shoulder bag historically used to carry tobacco or personal items. Today, these bags are often displayed at public events such as dances and powwows. The beading on a bandolier bag follows patterns inspired by nature and requires hundreds of hours of work and a great deal of skill. You can learn more about this art form with the Ojibwe Shoulder Bag Kit.
