In the western United States a peaceful culture of Native American Indians thrives. Rooted in ancient traditions of respect for the land and nature as well as a powerful spiritual heritage, the tribal people known as the Navajo, endures. Barbie® doll is dressed as a princess of the proud Navajo Nation wearing traditional dress and authentic jewelry. Many Navajos continue to wear traditional clothing daily and especially for ceremonial or social gatherings. Barbie® doll wears a woven shawl in ceremonial colors with symbolic and stylized patterns. Barbie® doll also wears a necklace of turquoise-colored beads with a “squash blossom” pendant and a “concho” belt in silver and turquoise tones with earrings and a sunburst broach. The long printed skirt and dark open-necked shirt are consistent with everyday wear for most Navajo women even today.
