Cornhusk Doll – Snow Shoe Hunter
Iroquois (Haudenosaunee). Made in Canada by a Cayuga. “For centuries the Iroquois child has played with dolls, made from corn husks, some dressed, some plain. Traditionally, play dolls are made without faces, there by encouraging the child’s imagination”. The doll stands on a 8″ X 3.5″ wooden stand, it is 8″ high and 3.5″ at the shoulders. He holds a spear, wears a bag with wampum strap, blanket and beaded boots with beads descending from his hair. The doll and snow shoes have amazing detail. Check out all of the pictures. We also have posted in books, stories of the adventures of a no-face doll: “The Secret of No Face”, reprinted by Indian Scholarship Fund.
