Whats in your (Saddle)Bag?


For my Indian Maiden character, Jacali, this is what’s in her woven basket! Some reeds she shucked to create more baskets, some wild berries she picked in the forest, some bird feathers she collected to add to a headdress she’s making, and a small handmade weapon to protect herself.

For this assignment, I researched Western Apache women and what they do daily in their tribal life. The woman, such as Jacali, weaves baskets, cooks food, makes clothing and accessories such as headdresses, and sometimes will even fight in battle along with the men! She carries around the handmade knife with her always as an essential so she can protect herself.
