These beaded moccasins are affiliated with the Osage Tribe. The leather moccasins have beaded tops, sides and soles in white, green, red, blue and metallic colored beads in geometric patterns. The tongues are split into two points that are tipped with metal tinklers and dyed red hair, possibly from a deer. It has been estimated that these moccasins may have been over 100 years old when donated in 1987 to the Kansas Historical Society.
