Cheyenne Indian Moccasins - C3732CI am not familiar with moccasins or with beadwork but I was told by an Indian dealer that these were most likely Southern Cheyenne, so I accept his analysis.  The soles show wear patterns.  I do not know the age of the moccasins but they were estimated to date to circa 1910.


The Cheyenne (Tsitsistas/The People) were once agrarian, or agricultural, people located near the Great Lakes in present-day Minnesota. The Cheyenne language is a unique branch of the Algonquian language family.
