Description:

A pair of snow shoes that looked to be made of what is assumed to be deer skin netting and a cottonwood structure, which is strange considering snow shoes are usually made with stronger wood materials. Provenance is unknown. [update 2019] Previous curator classified item as "native artifact", and due to materials, origin of item is likely Lil'wat.
