The buckskin pouch is rectangular shaped with a long strap on the top, three bundles of fringe on the bottom, and a triangular flap to close the pouch. The purse fastens with a carved button made out of a white, shiny shell. There are two pieces of abalone and white, circular shells, each attached to lower right and left corners of the pouch with skin wrapped in sinew. The strap of the pouch is two strips of thin skin, twisted. A triangular design, painted in brown, lines the bottom of the flap that closes the pouch. Beneath that, an orange triangular design is painted. On the sides, a dark blue design is painted. On the bottom of the pouch, a green, triangular design is painted. Around the abalone on the left, a blue and orange triangular design is painted. Around the abalone on the right, a green and orange design is painted. The fringe on the bottom of the pouch is painted green, but some of the pigment has come off. On the opposite side of the pouch, there are no designs painted. The construction of the pouch is one, longer piece of skin, folded, and then sewn with strips of skin on the sides.
Amulet. The front side of the figure has smaller pieces of abalone for the eyes, nose and mouth. The abalone for the right eye is missing. The figure seems to be a human shape, with four triangles (two painted brown, and two painted green) on the top of the head, maybe a crown (?). The figure has cross figures in green and brown on it's face. The figure is painted with other various geometric designs in green, brown, orange, and blue. The back of the figure is also painted in blue brown, orange and green designs. Tag found in pouch says "Apache See NAS V 1 p 40, 193, 50" . The bag and figure appear to be the same ones illustrated, along with cap # E432866, in "Medicine cap and fetich - Apache", plate facing page 40, in The North American Indian (1907-1930) v.01, The Apache. The Jicarillas. The Navaho ([Seattle] : E.S. Curtis ; [Cambridge, Mass. : The University Press], 1907. See pp. 40-41 for explanatory text.
