Posted by RALEIGH DEGEER AMYX on Mon, Oct 31, 2011 @ 07:44 AM

Exquisite Hand-Accomplished Beaded Suede Moccasins Late 19th Century. These Moccasins were created by an Artistic Kickapoo Indian sometime around 1875. The Kickapoos are believed to branch-off from the Iroquois Tribe. Today it is believed that Less than one thousand Kickapoos survive, in The United States.

The word Moccasin originated in America, approximately 1610 - and came from The Algonquin Tribe. Moccasins are a heel-less shoe made entirely of soft leather, such as Deerskin. The Sole is then brought up and attached to a piece of U-shaped leather right on the top of the foot. And then the Native American Artwork begins. When done as perfectly as this pair are, they are without question, a work of Art - even more so, 135 years after the fact.
