The Muscogee (Creek) people who were originally located in what is now the state of Georgia walked The Trail of Tears with the Cherokee to what is now Oklahoma beginning in 1830. This bag pre-dates that journey. It descended in an Oklahoma land run family until recently who had purchased it from the descendants of the original owner generations ago. It is a classic piece of Native American Art, its rarity on a par with its beauty.
