This small, rectangular pouch is made of doeskin, with all over beadwork on one side and partial beadwork on the reverse side. Beads are black, green, yellow, blue, and red on a white background. The design is a geometric made using the lazy stitch. The reverse side has a beaded cross. Each side has a different design. A doeskin thong would be used to attach the pouch to another item of clothing.
On March 16, 2015 during a NAGPRA collections review, designated tribal representatives from the three Ute tribes informed History Colorado staff that this pouch may have been used to carry ration tickets, tobacco or sage, money, or other small items. This pouch may have been worn by attaching it to a belt.
