Object Name Bag
Description A brown burlap bag with a drawstring top and a paper tag at the end of the string. The outside of the tag has the same image and wording used for the 50th anniversary books. Inside the tag is a quote from an unnamed tribal elder that reads "I remember as a young boy that we would never waste anything. We didn't havea lot of money and we would finda use for almost anything. My mom and dad would go to town in a dugout canoe and buy groceries or things we would need for the village. We would even use the bags that the food came in. Grits or rice came in burlap bags and we would use those bags over and over again as something to store things in even to put our clothes and belongings in when we needed to move camps or visit other camps. Nothing went to waste." Inside the bag was a t-shirt, medallion, and an envelope of cards depicting traditional Seminole dress over time. These items have since been removed from the bag and are numbered individually.
