Learn how to make traditional Indian dolls

The San Diego Archaeological Center presents Diane Tells His Name (Oglala Lakota) as the workshop leader for the Second Saturday Archaeology Day on March 14 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Native American Lakota doll artist Diane Tells His Name has been crafting dolls, stitching beadwork and making sketches and other art since childhood.

Two of her dolls have been accepted for accession into the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, DC.

She also has dolls in collections at museums and for sale in museums and galleries with collectable art.

She will provide supplies for each participant to make a thumb-sized Indian baby doll with a blanket of calico, including a story told about the baby dolls.

Participants will also be provided with a pattern for a seven-inch easy cloth doll with a traditional ‘T’ dress. All hand-worked, no sewing machines.

Reservations are required, as this popular class will have limited seating. No children under the age of 12. Workshop fees include materials. Bring a sack lunch to enjoy; water and drinks will be provided.

The San Diego Archaeological Center is located at 16666 San Pasqual Valley Road in Escondido.
