Description

Dance moccasin. One piece buckskin: straight heel seam puckered at bottom and sewed with buckskin thong. Instep seam puckered toward toe, top of foot overlaid by a U-shaped piece of black cloth edged with red (like a moccasin pattern) and beaded in bold zig-zags. Beading on left side only broken stitches show loss of decoration.
