Shoshone Moccasins

A head roach was worn by the men. Some roaches were made with porcupine hair, horse hair or whitetail deer hair. Normally three rows of different colors were created with dyes created from blueberry or chokecherry. Some roaches were made during time of war with other tribes. The hole in the middle was used to pull hair through that would be braided on top. The roaches were used as a camouflage.
