Women tied these bags inside their
aprons. This bag contained flint and tinder and a strike-a-light that hung on a small strap.
The surface of the bag is decorated with a geometric design, a rosette embroidered
with colored seed beads. The straps from which the strike-a-light hangs are decorated
with strings of colored beads and delicate metal plates. Fires were started by striking flint
on a strike-a-light to produce sparks that fell on tinder, such as dry moss or rabbit fur.
Reindeer suede, metal, seed beads, beads, flint.
Diameter 8.5 x 9 cm.
