Cradle model made from a wooden hoop covered with plain cloth over horizontal wooden slats. An opening down the middle of the board is loosely stitched together with thread but reveals a red flannel blanket underneath. The hood is made from thin sticks secured together at the ends. The interior of the hood is lined with cloth which wraps around to the exterior edge. Multiple strands of pink, black, and white beads hang from the front of the hood. A beaded squared made from white and green beads also hangs from the front of the hood. A doll is wrapped up inside the cradle with beads wrapped around the head. A long cloth strap is attached to either side of the cradle toward the upper end.
