Catalogue Description:
Child's beaded moccasins decorated with red, orange, and blue stripes on a light blue ground. They have old-style, seam-work typical of Cree. The beads go in two different directions, which is unusual. They have little trail dusters and are made all in one piece with one seam along the side.
