Wasco Sally Bag
The Wasco Sally Bag, rooted in the heritage of the Columbia River Plateau People, was originally crafted from dogbane and wild hemp for ceremonial significance and utilitarian purposes. The spirit of ancestral craftsmanship endures as modern materials, such as manufactured hemp, jute, and variations of yarn have replaced traditional fibers.
