An Interesting Storyteller Doll, by Emily N.

This stamp commemorates the Southwest Indians. It is a picture of a story teller doll dolphin. They were made by the Southwest Indians. They would take the clay and mold it into what they wanted it to be. After they molded the bigger one, they would take some more clay and mold it into small ones of the larger one and have them crowded around the big one for a story. The larger one would usually have an open mouth so it looked as if it was telling a story. The stories would tell mostly about life and how to be a good person. Although the Southwest Indians didn't know anything about dolphins, this is an idea of what they would have done if they had.
