I don’t think I have ever seen such beautiful footwear. Apart from their stunning visual presence, these mukluks are special because they were the last pair home-made by an elderly woman before she passed away, and she gave them to this man. That’s probably why they fit him so well. What a living tribute to a very talented craftswoman. You can see these mukluks better in the close-up below. This man had just arrived at the courthouse after a press conference at the library as part of a growing protest against the construction of pipelines across First Nations territories.
