These are the feet of a Native American male dancer at the Heard Museum Hoop Dance competition.
I love the details. He is wearing comfortable beaded moccasin boots with ribbons and bells that make a nice sound when he walks. Moccasins are very comfortable and I used to wear them when I was a kid.
I love the sounds of Native American costumes. The hair looks like it might be from a sheep, but I am not sure.
I particularly like the goat hoof rattles that many Native Americans wear in costumes. I have two goat hoof rattle belts that I have on the back of doors in my house so that I can hear that gentle rattle when I open and close the doors. I find the sound soothing and it reminds me of Native American festivals.
