Moccasins

Moccasins are perhaps one of the few dance clothes components wore by straight dancers, that still retain a great deal of tribal identity in the cut and decoration style used.

Concerning the one-piece, soft-soled Omaha moccasins, Fletcher & LaFlesche state,

“The moccasins of the Omaha were made without (separate) soles and the (beadwork) embroidery was confined to a narrow band on the top of the foot and the flap about the ankle. There was no marked difference in style between the moccasins worn by men and those which belonged to women.”
(Fletcher & LaFlesche, 1911, p. 355)

Concerning the similar one-piece soft-soled Osage moccasins made without a tongue, Alice Callahan states,

“The Osage moccasins are decorated with a single row of beads and are low-cut with two small buckskin tabs at the heel.”
(Callahan, 1990, p. 115)

Concerning the Ponca moccasins, Dr. James Howard states,

“Although soft-soled moccasins were worn by the Ponca in the early 19th century, they were abandoned in favor of hard-soled footgear sometime before 1850. The typical Ponca moccasin for the past century is of the two-piece High Plains type with hard parfleche soles and soft buckskin uppers.”
(Howard, 1965, p. 62)

The two-piece hard-soled moccasins with a tongue worn by straight dancers today fall into two categories of the type mentioned by Dr. Howard above. Either partially beaded or fully beaded. The beadwork most often is the lazy-stitch method in either case.

Among the Ponca and Osage the most common moccasins worn today are fully beaded and often times are similar to either Lakota or Cheyenne style and colors, with geometric design patterns.

Among the Comanche, partially beaded moccasins commonly referred to as “dusters” are frequently seen with their characteristic heel-fringe trailing behind the moccasin and a row of fringe or tin cones down the center of the top of the moccasin.

The 10th pair down in the first post you have listed as Osage. I don't buy that one. they may have been collected or donated by an Osage but I would bet money those are delaware style mocs.

We need to do some picture trading ole boy. Drop me an email if you are interested cause I have about 30 gig worth of pics from Museums, private collections, modern pieces...not to mention all the historic pics I have.

I think you may be right.

the first nine pictures in your first post seem to be broken. i am really interested in seeing these. i have been under the impression that Cheyenne mocs with a lazy stick roeset on the vamp were womens mocs and and partially beaded mocs with two lanes down the front with a space in between were mens. is this not the case?

the pictures that i was able to see are very nice. i am of the opinion that one cannot have too many pictures of moccasins
