Does anyone know where a fellow could find an image of an 1840's Shooting bag and powder horn that would have been used in central Canada by native people?

Thanks

I would look at the British Museum stuff. Do a google search for "Cree bag"? I think they are simply the two-panel quill-loomed bags we see in tons of Rindisbacher paintings. I made a reproduction of one for the Grand Portage exhibit.

I love how that top bag has panels of zigzag and the bottom, panels of loomed quill. There is another similar "Red River" or Cree bag in Patterns of Power that has a applique ribbon top. It is funny how many bags with this overall design are out there and how many varieties of how to do that design with the variou materials.
