    She was found in a box of momentos from a relatives trip to Mexico. She is about 9 inches tall and has no arms or legs, she appears to be made of burlap and looks like she is completely hand made. Someone mentioned that she could be native american and not mexican made. Any info is greatly appreciated.

      She is a Seminole Indian doll :-) Nice tourist doll , I can't tell but she is most likely constructed from traditional palmetto fiber. These dolls hard to date when not holding as they have been being made for a long time and still are .
      The Seminole Indians are indigenous to the state of Florida, meaning they were originally from there and did not migrate from other areas. It has been said the Seminole tribe settled there as far back as 10,000 BC. For hundreds of years, the Seminole Indians basically controlled almost all of Florida. Even when the Europeans arrived, at first they were not interested in the area of Florida, but showed more curiosity toward the southern part of the nation (Virginia, North Carolina, etc), so the Seminoles still had control of their homeland.
      Here are some photo's of the dolls
