This pair of leather moccasins is decorated with a colorful variety of beads in triangle and checkerboard patterns. They have a single tie leather lace and a cotton fabric edging around the tops. 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.
