"Mocassins (Seminole)
The Seminole usually preferred to go barefoot, but they did make very a characteristic soft-soled, tanned deerskin moccasin with a 'pucker-toe.'  These moccasins were made by the Mikasuki Seminole, but were never worn.  Thomas Barbour collected them in 1921, although the style was characteristic throughout the nineteenth century. ..."
