Traditionally, the Kumeyaay/Diegueño ancestors made dolls from various materials like clay and corn husks for their children. They used seashells, small pieces of fur, and basket material to decorate their dolls. After European materials like cloth, yarn, and glass beads were introduced, they were used to make dolls for trade or money. Join Eva Salazar (Kumeyaay) and learn to make your own cloth doll.
