Pair of northern plains women’s beaded leggings

Circa 1910 or so and a fine example of antique Native American beadwork, this is a pair of women’s leggings. Beads stitched on to brain tanned hide. I think these are Cree or another Athabaskan group in southern Canada. Floral designs in multiple colors with translucent beads, greasy yellow, white hearts, clear and opaques. They measure 15 1/2″ x 9″ when folded with the cuff down.
