Join Debora Box and her father, Austin Box, of the Southern Ute Tribe to make a traditional parfleche bag. A parfleche is made of tough, folded rawhide. Parfleche, or rawhide, was traditionally prepared by cleaning and de-hairing the skin and then by stretching it and allowing it to dry in the sun. Austin and Debora have continued the tradition and will teach you how to create your own traditional Parfleche Bag. Each participant will take home a rawhide neck pouch or belt bag decorated by you!
