Native American Cradle Boards

Native American cradle boards were traditionally used by Indian mothers as a safe place to hold their babies. They were created for a practical reason originally, but they are also very beautiful.

Papooses or cradleboards, can be hung in your home as a tribute to your family or as a symbol of the importance of a mother’s love. You will find that they are a great way to display Indian culture and history.

Many Indian cradle boards are accented with animal pelts or skins. This can make each board look different and unique when compared with other cradle boards. In addition to leather and fur accents you will also find cradle boards that are accented with feathers, beadwork and other American Indian symbols.
