These old commercial dolls (approx. 9" tall) were collected from a General Store in White Clay, Nebraska.  This is the closest town to the Pine Ridge Reservation.  Undoubtedly, these dolls were the first "ethnic" dolls that some Sioux children had to play with.

Note "Cheyenne, Wyo " on the back of the male doll.  For many years, Sioux and other Indians have appeared at the annual Cheyenne Frontier Days celebration, and I suspect that the dolls were purchased there by a Sioux family for their kids.

Dolls are leather and appear to be stuffed with some kind of animal (horse?) hair.  Details on the dolls are all hand-painted, and there is wear apparent on both dolls.  PLEASE CONTACT ME for more photos and any questions you might have.
