A pouch and strap, probably for holding a knife. The tapered pouch is extensively decorated with trade beads and has a beaded fringe. The long strap is made with six strands of strung beads reinforced with strips of hide. The beads are blue, black and white, with the exception of three red beads in the strap, which may be the result of a repair.
This knife pouch is most likely of Dene origin. MacFarlane may have obtaned it from one of the Gwich'in Dene who were employed by the Hudson's Bay Company, or it may have come from an Inuvialuk who had it obtained it from a Gwich'in source.
