Vintage Canadian Snowshoes / Raquettes a neige Vintage / Vintage Schneeschuhe

SOLD - Vintage "HURON" Snowshoes

These vintage "Huron" type snowshoes are in excellent condition. Due to the elements, the original coton strap bindings have been replaced/upgraded with newer leather bindings. The pom poms were placed on the edges of the snowshoes for both spiritual and hunting tactics. The om poms were often made from the fur of the animal hunted, apparently to try and mask the human scent. The colour would denote what tribe the wearer belonged to, red often is associated with Cree Indians.
