A Navajo child might have spent much of its first nine months to a year in a cradleboard. This baby was securely laced in for protection. The beam over the child's head was for protection from the sun and insects. Cradleboards were not carried on the back but were often hung from a tree as the child's mother collected pine nuts or worked on other chores.
