In 1850, Apache culture emerged from a combination of influences from the peoples of the Great Plains, Great Basin, and the Southwest. Apache people frequently used bows and arrows as their weapons for hunting and warfare. This Native American Jewelry, Beadwork & Western Auction, presented by North American Auction Company, highlights a rare Chiricahua Apache parfleche hide arrow quiver from the ex-Wasko collection. The piece from circa 1870 is among the earliest Chiricahua Apache examples. Its opening is decorated with 16 diamond cutouts.
Also featured in this live sale is an oil painting of Native men by Montana-based artist Ed Totten. The oil painting features a group of semi-nude Native people performing a Blood Ceremony, which symbolizes rebirth. In the piece, the men are dressed in ceremonial garments and headdresses.
