Wabanaki beaded purse, ca. 1870
Contributed by Hudson Museum, Univ. of Maine
Indians throughout the Northeast copied beading styles and traded objects, making it difficult to attribute beadwork to specific tribes.
The purse may have been made by a member of the Penobscot, Passamaquoddy, Micmac, or Maliseet tribes, which are collectively referred to as Wabanaki.
