These fine Northern Plains moccasins probably originated at Fort Belknap or Fort Peck in Montana. Moccasins from this area are relatively rare and this pair is striking in its design and beadwork. 

These moccasins were recently deaccessioned from a small historical society and they are fresh to the market.
