19th Century Cheyenne Plains Indian Beaded Pictorial Moccasins, circa 1890

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Constructed of native tanned hide, these moccasins were intricately beaded in a pictorial design consisting of star, cross and arrow motifs in glass trade beads.

The Cheyenne migrated with the buffalo herds and their territory encompassed much of the Great Plains of the United States including present day Minnesota, Montana, Oklahoma, and parts of Colorado, Wyoming, and South Dakota.

As with all our offerings, authenticity is guaranteed.
