Description

This male Apache doll represents a singer medicine man (Nde Hatal).

He is dressed with the traditional Apache buckskin coat, and the toe moccasins. He’s carrying a beaded pouch on his concho belt and in the left hand the traditional water drum, made with a copper tin pot covered with deer skin. Around his neck a silver concho button with glass beads form the necklace, ended by the tweezers. On his head the traditional medicine hat. His moccasins got the toe protection and his belt carries a knife sheath with the knife inside.

This doll was probably made for a cultural purpose or for exhibition, to showcase how the medicine men among the White Mountain Apache tribe used to be like. Not considered a toy-doll.

This piece is unique and could be showcased in a museum dedicated to Native American cultures of the SouthWest.
