This is a decorative example of an authentic Southwestern style Native American papoose cradle board, handcrafted with rich gold deer skin leather. This American Indian papoose is an authentic Native American handcraft made by artists of the Navajo Tribe. Famous for their rich history in New Mexico and Arizona, the Navajo Indians have been building traditional handcrafts for generations.
This type of unique handmade papoose or cradleboard is a Native baby cradle used as a back pack to carry an infant. This one has an attached medicine pouch and medicine wheel with horsehair whip as well as hand bead work, metal conchos and round head tacks. For adding Native American history and culture to your home, a hand made papoose represents the American Indian way of life in the American southwest.
Use this as a wall hanging for rustic decor in a cabin, log home or southwest room. A papoose is a Native American symbol of life and a very interesting decorating accessory in southwestern style and western home decor. Cradle boards are a great way to add to your rustic home decor, and create that ranch, lodge, or rustic cowboy, Indian or bunkhouse look.
