Date: unknown

Area: James Bay

Catalogue number: Pitt Rivers 1957.5.22ab

Dimensions: Length 22.5cm; width 4.8

Collector: Unknown; donated by Miss Elinor Ewbank; note on a similar belt indicates that these items were collected by the donor's mother (cf. Pitt Rivers 1957.5.21).

Notes: Wrist bands are not stiff which indicates that they were not lined with birch bark. Miss Ewbank donated other items (belt, birch bark containers trimmed with goose quills, and a mokuk) which suggest that they originated in the eastern James Bay region.
