This pair of moccasins is decorated in a linear pattern with blue, white, green and red beads. The decoration on the one piece uppers vary slightly. The moccasins have leather ties, tassels on the heels, and cuffs finished with a floral calico material. When they arrived in the collections of the Kansas Historical Society they had lost their provenience, their record of ownership. While this is disappointing, it does not mean the moccasins have lost all of their utility and value. They can still be used for teaching purposes as an example of an early ethnographic items in Kansas.
