This set is targeted for Grade 6-8 students. It examines the use of free form (floral) and geometric design in a variety of functional objects decorated in the style typical of the artists' tribe and area. Each artwork is a reflection of the artists' development of highly stylized, complex patterns and forms.
The Bandolier bags that are floral or free-form typically originate from the Woodlands and Ojibwe culture.
The Bandolier bags that are geometric are more typical of the Plains Indians.

Directions: Compare and contrast the two different styles of bags.
