Animal skin pouch making workshop

What's in the Bag? - A workshop w/ the Quinnetukhut Society

Native people used bags to store smoking and fire gear. We'll look at recreated period tobacco bags and learn about the history and use of tobacco bags in native, 18th c. New England, talk about the famous 'iceman' Oetzi, and his bag and tool it, then make our own animal skins using bone tools, which we will also make. We'll conclude with a flint and steel fire starting demo. Suggested donation 5-20$ for materials.

    I have made archery arrow quivers out of bear hides. I made a bear paw and a bear ass quiver. Both were attention grabbers at every event. The bear paw quiver worked great at camping too, just slip it into a tent, grunt a few times, and watch the fun begin. I have plans but I want to thank you for hosting this event. Tom D.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
