Men's beaded dance moccasins with fringed instep and beaded band above sole / Julia Pipestem

Curatorial Remarks

These are not traditional Otoe style; collected by the Osage. By mid-20th century, the Otoe were making a generic Southern style of moccasins. The outline bead work and fringe on the back of the moccasins are indicators of Southern Plains style.
