Saturdays at the Museum: Why does the Corn Husk Doll have no face?


The Great Spirit had taken it away. Since that time, the Haudenosaunee people do not put a face on their corn husk dolls. This is to remind people never to think that they are better than anyone else… or a great punishment will fall upon them.

On Saturday, October 27, 2018, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Children and Adults alike can enjoy making their own corn husk doll inspired by the traditional Iroquois legend.

SATURDAYS AT THE MUSEUM, a series of special programs / lifeways demonstrations offered during this Fall Season that celebrates the culture and heritage of this nation’s First Peoples.
