A pair of beaded Dakota-Metis half leggings, probably from the Red River region of North Dakota, Minnesota, and Manitoba, made in the mid 1800s. The leggings are beaded on their front faces with a series of standalone fantasy floral and double-curved motifs typical of Dakota–Metis (as well as Santee Dakota and some Crow) beadwork decoration. Each legging is bordered in a beaded checkerboard motif.
