Pair of Moccasins Item Number: 43.201.70a-b from the Brooklyn Museum


Definitely northern Plains. On Gros Vente moccasins one sees beaded designs like this on deer or elk hide, from around the Fort Belknap reservation region. But this "arrow" design is a very common design used by several different tribes. Since they do not look particularly Salish, or Sioux, they possibly are Arapaho.
