Pair of Snow Shoes
A pair of snow shoes, part of a collection of ethnographical material made by Admiral Sir George Back (1796-1878). An Athapascan type of snowshoe, each frame made of two pieces of wood, pointed a each end (the toe ends turn up), with five crossbars. They have hexagonal woven netting and holes for the wearer's toes. The netting would be made of 'babiche' - thongs of moose or caribou hide.
