This bag is from the Mackenzie area. The front flap and shoulder strap are completely beaded in what is considered to be a very old fashioned geometric pattern. The beads themselves are quite small opaque and dull which alludes to the age of the bag. It probably dates to the early 1900's from a Northern region in the Yukon. Unfortunately we do not know the name of the maker but we know it was used by the clergy. This bag was used to carry books, most likely the bible.
