BBHC Cody Enterprise column: "Your Museum Matters" - April 2011
From our collection:
Small and easy to carry, natal amulets were sometimes given to Indian children to carry throughout their lives. Grandmothers or other female members of the family made the decorated amulets after the birth of a child. In some instances the baby’s umbilical cord was dried and carried in the amulet. Many amulets were made in the shape of animals such as turtles and lizards.
As of 06-14-2017 this object is on display in the Plains Indian Museum. If you are making a special trip, please double-check before visiting.
