Outstanding 40 inch cradleboard made by "Coyote Woman" signed and dated 1991 by one of the plains Indians of the Cheyenne Tribes. The papoose (infant native american baby) was placed in the pointed-end cradleboard to prevent injury to the baby should the board ever fall from a galloping horse. The papoose's cradleboard was decorated to show the family's significant place with in the tribe. Thanks for looking!
