description

Summary

Pair or moose hide leggings with fringe decorated with glass beads in floral design. These leggings are indicative of a much later time period than those which would have been worn during the fur trade era; this pair dates to the late 1930s as part of a WPA project. The leather thongs extending from the top of the leggings would secure the garments to a cord or belt around the wearer’s waist.
