The following thumbnail images are examples of some of my miniature Cornhusk Dolls. I make male and female dolls that reflect the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) traditional clothing and symbols.
Below you will find two mothers (Ista) with their her babies. The Mother is wearing a traditional style leather dress, with a shawl that has her clan symbol on the front. The dress is beaded with a celestial sky representing Sky World.

Corn Husk Doll with Baby
She has a Deer symbol indicating she is of the Deer clan. The Haudenosaunee are matrilineal, which means the clan will pass to her children.
Materials: Corn husk, leather, glass beads, thread, yarn. Bases vary from rocks, cedar, driftwood, or artist's fungus (a type of mushroom). Bases depend on what I have or what suits the type of doll. Clothing can also be cloth to reflect after European trade.
