Navajo Dolls represent Navajo Men and Women in traditional dress.
Navajo dolls are meant to be played with or collected.
Traditional dress for a Navajo woman would start with moccasins, either ankle or knee high. Alternatively, a Navajo woman might wear short moccasins and wear leggins or leg wraps.
The full, tiered skirt might be cotton or velvet. It is a full length pleated shirt that might have rick rack trim between the sections.
Men usually wear traditional muslin pants, a bright colored shirt (often velvet) and a cinched sash like belt or concha belt. Men also wear necklaces and bracelets.
Often Navajo men wore a Bandolier Bag (medicine bag) slung diagonally across from shoulder to hip. The bag was usually made of leather and decorated with conchas.
Navajo dolls might just be standing or they could be involved in an activity from everyday life such as weaving, cooking, or sewing.
