Gift of Bonnie C. Maly, in memory of Beth Bettencourt

Seattle, Wash.

IBM 7-24-02: This leather doll, made to resemble a Native American woman, is printed on the front side only. Her black hair is dressed in braids. The bodice of her dress is "fringed" and has colored decorations; her skirt has a wide green and red band at the bottom and is printed with "Seattle, Wash. ~ " The doll's feet are two strips of leather, the fronts of which are printed red. The back of the doll is composed of two pieces of leather, dark brown suede at the top, smooth brown at the bottom. Doll is obviously a souvenir from Seattle, Washington, and does not appear to be representative of a particular Native American group, but rather a stereotype.
