Nearly every culture has dolls and figurines as part of its tradition. These types of items serve many purposes. They help the adults teach history and culture to the younger members. Younger members can role-play with the items to make sense of how they might act in the world. Sometimes they are decorative, to add beauty to a home.
These Native American dolls were seen at the Native American museum in New Hampshire. I love the detailing on them.
