FROM CARD: "INVENTORIED 1977." Note that this bag is not listed in the ledger book entry for 7725 (which lists only a pair of boots, now numbered 7725A), but there is a catalog card for the fire bag 7725B. Presumably, the bag was found later, and a card was made for it, but this was not noted in the ledger. There is also the possibility that the bag was misnumbered / misidentified. It is clearly marked "7725-B" but the ink does not look "old". One possibility is that this bag might actually be # E7728, which has not been located.Source of the information below: Inuvialuit Pitqusiit Inuuniarutait: Inuvialuit Living History, The MacFarlane Collection website, by the Inuvialuit Cultural Resource Centre (ICRC), Inuvik, N.W.T., Canada (website credits here ), entry on this artifact , retrieved 2-10-2020: Pouch made by sewing together of strips and pieces of hide. A casement around the top [edged with cotton cloth] is stained with red ochre. Passing through the casement is a drawstring made of braided sinew.Some of the hide pieces on the bag show remnants of fur; presumably there was once more fur on at least part of this bag, but past insect activity may have damaged it?
