"playing with skookums"

I discovered Skookum dolls this year.

These 'Indian' dolls were made in the USA from 1914-1960 for tourists. Mary McAboy, a non Native , came up with the idea and called them Skookums (meaning: very good) It became a 'cottage industry' . Women would get kits and then assemble them at home.. Over the years the materials changed but the dolls always wore folded blankets. The faces glance to the left and sometimes to the right, never straight ahead (not polite) Most of them are female dolls or females with a baby on their backs (papoose style) and there were also male dolls. They come in a variety or sizes from 2" -36", but most are 5".

My small collection of Skookums inspired me to paint them.
