These dolls were used to record Native American life. Dolls were dressed in similar fashions as the members of the tribe. Children would often make dolls for playing. Girls would donate their own hair for the dolls and boys would skin animals and use the hides for clothing. Nearly every tribe would make dolls for storytelling. Most of the dolls were symbolic and held spiritual significance. Harriet Little donated this couple with a baby to the Botetourt County Historical Museum, located behind the Botetourt County Courthouse in Fincastle.
