Commentary
Midwestern native art was strongly influenced by the Great Lakes style and included ribbon applique and traditional geometric beadwork in overlaid stitching. The regional floral style was, however, more abstract. These various tendencies are represented in these moccasins. During the 19th century, when many tribes relocated in Oklahoma, the Midwestern floral style spread into the southern Plains.
