This pair of moccasins is made of deer skin dyed yellow. They are decorated with beadwork at the ankle and along the side closure. Impressions around the conchos (possibly made of German silver) indicate that they replaced a larger decoration. The moccasins, made for a woman, are 26" tall and have a 9.5" sole length. Donation records note that this pair came from a Kaw reservation in Oklahoma.
