A great set of Native American Indian Snowshoes in the classic teardrop shape. The fine weaving on the babiche was likely done with animal hide; possibly caribou. The dark leather bindings make for a nice contrast against the snowshoe. These are an excellent pair with the red pom-poms still intact.
