The Blackfoot hide cloak and gauntlets were presented to John Buchan, Governor General of Canada by Chief Shot-both-Sides.

The cape is possibly made of deer hide, decorated with fringing and appliqu├Ęd satin ribbons with embroidered medallions in the centre and corners.

The gauntlets are hide with glass beadwork floral motifs and a paler hide fringing. They are lined with a quilted satin.
