again I caution that the provenance may or may not be correct. Indigenous society of the 19th c was very polyethnic. The glass beadwork, and flowers may be traced to the Métis women via the French nuns (floral designs) and the fur trade. This looks like a Thunderbird. It’s common, even to this day, for American Indigenous peoples from the northern states to not realize their Michif heritage.
