May 9, 2020: Native Deerskin Dollmaking

Since the beginning of time, Wampanoag children have been making and playing with deerskin “no face” dolls- dolls having no faces so that children could project their own image onto the doll. These beautiful dolls are made from the hide of whitetail deer, which is then stuffed with bear, skunk, and raccoon fur. Join our Native staff as they guide you through the process, and take home the doll at the end of the workshop. Choose from a variety of little accessories including clothing, jewelry, paint or tattoos. Which doll will you make? A child doll? A woman? Man? Elder? So many possibilities!
