The Indians of the Plains and Plateau areas, men, women and children alike, wore this very basic, hardsole type moccasin which was developed out of necessity as protection from the hard, and sometimes rocky ground of the prairie that was their home. Normally constructed with soft tanned elk or buckskin uppers and supple, but tough rawhide soles, they represent the most highly refined form of Native American footwear. Today they remain a popular style of moccasin and are both comfortable and durable for dancing, camping or everyday wear.
Since the Cheyenne moccasin makers have been the acknowledged masters of the art for years, Missouri River chose to present the typical Cheyenne style of cut and construction in this pattern. Other tribal variations are shown in examples on the cover sheet as well as the instructions themselves and are easily adapted using this basic hardsole moccasin design.
