Description
Women's moccasin, beaded, blue ground red/white geometric design, main design of stepped diamonds outlined in white on blue background, brown buckskin, Rocky Mountain style, completely beaded except top, red/white sole border band, large flap, tongue, long laces. As per Al McClelland: Stoney moccasins, canvas backed leggings and mountain sheep uppers. The large size white heart beads are typical of post World War I era. While typically Cree style the combination of colours and arrows in the pattern are more typical of Stoney beadwork of this period. With a great deal of wear on the moccasins it is quite evident that they were danced in a geat deal. These moccasins and leggings should be related to an equally fine dress.The dress yoke in the Moore House on the upper balcony bears close resemblance to the set.
