In the deep of winter, traditional Ojibwe hunters strapped on these snowshoes to maneuver through thick snow. Aagimug (snowshoes), which were developed by American Indians in the Great Lakes region, and allowed the hunters to move more easily in their efforts to feed their families.  They work well on open ground and in deep snow.  It is also called the ski-snowshoe because it slides on hard surfaces, as the front is turned up.
