Catalogue Description:
Pair of girl's knee-high moccasins with beaded designs on vamp and on the lower half of the boot. Possibly not Osage-made but Cheyenne or Arapaho woman's small boot moccasins with tall leggings. The use of black beads is more Cheyenne. Nicely done beadwork on the vamp and partway up the leggings in white, yellow, pink and blue.
