This pair is just one example of the many different, beautiful moccasins we have in our collections from very diverse cultural groups. These moccasins, made out of leather and decorated with cloth and glass beads, are associated with the Innu or Naskapi people. They were collected by Dr. William Strong near Labrador, Canada, and donated to the museum by Dr. Matthew Stirling. They were accessioned by the museum on the 7th of August, 1964.
