Cultural Narrative: 

This is a skeleton man design. It looks like the man and the woman both on this one. Valerie Switzler

The man would walk along way to get the deer that is why he was so skinny. Maxine Switzler

The man was a slender guy, you can tell. This one looks like natural dye, it is not faded at all. Arlita Rhoan
