This pair of children’s ankle wrapped moccasins is decorated in a geometric pattern often found in Dakota Sioux designs. The vamp is covered with dyed porcupine quills using an interlocking zig-zag technique. The quillwork is bordered by a band of glass seed beads. The moccasins were donated to the Museum by Edward Dickson who ran a supply store in the 1880’s at Oak Lake, about 30 km west of Brandon. Dickson also served as the MLA for Lansdowne from 1888 to 1895.
