Panel bags represent a very old and intricate form of textile weaving. The artform predates ribbonwork, and by looking at objects like these, we are able to determine that geometric patterns have existed in Myaamia aesthetics for a very long time. These bags are not Myaamia, but are very similar to bags collected from Miami people, such as the one in the image to the right. Often, panel bags represent the oppositional cultural figures Ciinkwia ‘Thunder Being’ and Lenipinšia ‘Underwater Panther’ on the opposite sides of the bags. The top bag is Ho-Chunk and displays the Ciinkwia side of the bag. The bottom bag is Potawatomi and displays the Lenipinšia side of the bag.
