Mid 1900's Beaded Moccasins 

Historic Era North American Native Artifact


~ Moccasins ~

A slipper is a shoe, made of deerskin or other delicate cowhide, comprising of a sole (made with calfskin that has not been "worked") and sides made of one piece of cowhide, sewed together at the top, and some of the time with a vamp (extra board of calfskin). The sole is delicate and adaptable and the upper part frequently is enhanced with weaving or beading. However once in a while worn inside, it is primarily planned for open air use. By and large, it is the footwear of numerous native individuals of North America; in addition, trackers, merchants, and European pioneers wore them. Etymologically, the slipper gets from the Algonquian language Powhatan word makasin and from the Proto-Algonquian word *maxkeseni (shoe).


During the 1800s, slippers as a rule were important for a Canadian formal attire, for example a meeting suit of garments. The most well-known style is that of the Plains Indians shoe.

Slippers safeguard the foot while permitting the wearer to feel the ground. The Plains Indians wore hard-sole sandals, considering that their regional topography included rock and desert plants. The eastern Indian clans wore delicate sole slippers, for strolling in leaf-made woodland progress.
