Native American Navajo Cradle Board 31.5" -Coyote (cb6)
Exceptional Southwestern Native American cradle board, handcrafted with real deer skin leather and coyote fur. This American Indian papoose cradle board is an authentic Native American handcraft made by the famous craftsmen of the Navajo Tribe.
Famous for their rich history, the Navajo Indians have been building traditional handcrafts for generations. This unique type of handmade cradle board is a Native baby cradle used as a back pack to carry an infant. Traditionally, mothers would wrap the baby in white linen cloth and tie them in the cradle board. It could then be stood against a tree or rock while the mother worked or carried it on her back.
Made with beautiful and soft deer skin leather for a rich warm look and feel, this cradle board is crowned with a real coyote pelt. Use this as a wall hanging for rustic decor in a cabin, log home or southwest room. A papoose cradle board is a Native American symbol of life, and a very interesting decorating accessory in southwestern style and western home decor. Cradle boards are great for giving your home a ranch, cabin, lodge, or rustic cowboy and Indian look.
