Sioux moccasins with beaded soles were often erroneously called "wedding" or "burial" moccasins. In face, they were work for many occasions. Old photographs show Sioux adults and children wearing moccasins with beaded soles at Fourth of July celebrations. Moccasins like these are an example of heavy beading and extended design field the characterized Plains beadwork of the Reservation Era.
