Ambassador Harper’s Moccasins
United States c. 2014
In 2014, Keith M. Harper became the first Native American to be named a U.S. ambassador to the UN Human Rights Council. A citizen of the Cherokee Nation, Harper served as the U.S. Permanent Representative to the UN Human Rights Council until 2017. These moccasins were a gift to him from his wife’s family, citizens of the Caddo Nation, on the occasion of Harper’s swearing-in ceremony as ambassador.
