The Southern Cheyenne developed a reputation beginning in the late 19th century as prolific artists. However, how the work of these artists and those of contemporary artists fit within a broader Southern Cheyenne religious system has received little attention. This presentation by assistant curator John Lukavic is based on recent research with Southern Cheyenne moccasin makers and religious leaders in western Oklahoma and will focus on the role of moccasins and moccasin designs as religious art.
