Pair of Moccasins

Catalogue Description:
Definitely northern Plains. On Gros Vente moccasins one sees beaded designs like this on deer or elk hide, from around the Fort Belknap reservation region. But this "arrow" design is a very common design used by several different tribes. Since they do not look particularly Salish, or Sioux, they possibly are Arapaho.
