Back in the day, baby was snug-

gly wrapped into a blanket,

tucked into the cradleboard,

and away baby went along with

mom.

Raising little ones was a pri-

mary responsibility of women,

and busy mothers had to have

their children at their sides as

they carried out their daily

tasks.

The cradleboard was very

handy in this respect. A cradle-

board could be attached to a

saddle for easy transport, it

could be stood up against a

rock or a tree, and it could be

worn on mom’s back. It was

perfect for carrying and protect-

ing the papoose.

Many tribes used the cradle-

board (and it still is in use today

in some areas).

Cradleboards were made in all

shapes and sizes, and of mate-

rial ranging from birch-bark and

hide, to elaborately designed

beadwork.

Many great cradleboards can be

found at River Trading Post,

including the two classics

shown here.
