Cultural Narrative: 

This is a sally bag, with Wasco Man. Ii don't remember seeing eyes in people in the traditional designs and they didn't trim inside. Valerie Switzler

It's corn husk, it looks more modern, it dried up pretty stiff. Arlita Rhoan

The Wasco man looks like a dancer. Maxine Switzler
