In the Beginning, grandmother made seven dolls for the seven campfires of the Teton circle. Grandmother told the mothers to teach and train the dolls because The People would only be as strong as their ability to teach and train their children.
The dolls were to be handed down through the generations so all of the children to come would have the teachings of the grandmother and the first mother.
These dolls have been recreated by internationally known artist J. Nelson with knowledge, great reverence and respect for the ways of our native american peoples. They emphasize the importance of all of our children, the way that we care for them and the need to teach them the things we should all know in our hearts.
