These Cheyenne moccasins are beautiful. The light and dark blue beads highlighted by red beads on a white ground emphasize the deer track design along with the classic banding found on the tongues of the moccasins. Evidence of wear is on the soles of the moccasins and the beadwork is original and intact. The hide is native tanned and the beads are sewn onto the hide with sinew.
