A great set of Native American Indian Snowshoes - with almost square toes. The fine weaving on the babiche was likely done with animal hide; possibly caribou. Native American Indian snowshoes like these are difficult to find - as they are in excellent condition - no breaks in the babiche. They have leather bindings with nice straps. These would be an excellent pair as part of a collage.
