So pleased to offer you this absolutely amazing Antique American Indian Buffalo Hyde with the providence. Recently brought out of storage, this fantastic Buffalo Rug / Blanket has been in the same family since it was purchased around 1920 in Red Wing Minnesota. Red wing is near the Prairie Island Indian Reservation. The owners Grandfather purchased this rug / blanket and his mother, whom is now 93 remembers using it on the wagon as a lap cover. It is warm and heavy! The back is lined with wool and as you can see in the photographs it is in need of some repair. But overall I rate this piece in excellent condition for it's age. The fur is all intact except for some wear around some of the edges. Our research indicates that the tribe of Mdewakanton is nearby and that means "Those who were born of the waters." Clearly, this would be an amazing piece to add to any collection. It is Heirloom quality! We will entertain offers.
