Native American 
Indian Dolls

In every culture I am aware of, parents give their children dolls and toys to play with. Native North America was no exception, and there are doll making traditions in many tribes which have survived to this day. However, the idea of a child's doll as a lasting keepsake is not really traditional in a lot of Indian tribes. Dolls were usually made of perishable materials like cornhusk, palmetto fiber, or bundled pine needles;  even those that were made out of wood or leather were not often built to last the way adult crafts were. In many tribes it was considered inappropriate to discipline a very young child, so they simply weren't given items they weren't allowed to chew on and throw in the river. And in some tribes, the impermanence of children's dolls and toys was meaningful to parents--as corn husk dolls and other childhood things naturally fell apart with time, it showed that a child was growing up. Even though Native American dolls were not traditionally made to last, they were often beautifully adorned with miniature clothing and jewelry, beadwork or painting, and animal fur or even hair from the mother's head. Because native adornment and decorative patterns are so distinctive, dolls made by native craftsmen are distinctive as well, and today many people, adults and children alike, like to keep them as cultural collectibles as well as toys.

All are hand sewn, are designs by hand, created, assembled and initialed by a person of Native American descent. She is of Cherokee roots from her great-great-great Grandmother and other grandparents farther back in her lineage.
