Toy Cradleboard and Baby Doll: Gallery Label - Current


Minneapolis Institute of Arts



Institution Minneapolis Institute of Arts
Apsaalooka parents provided many toys for their children. The nature of these gifts insured that when children became adults, they would be honorable members of the community. Constructed like a full-size one and decorated with classic Apsaalooka designs, this miniature cradleboard has a small removable doll with buffalo hair. This piece and the doll may have been created to teach young children the importance of being a good parent.
