The cradle or carrier of the Pueblo Indian babies is either a board or rawhide stretched on a wooden frame. Sometimes they have a frame of wicker, or cloth stretched on a wood frame, as a hood. The child is bound in this carrier and altho they appear uncomfortable, they are seldom heard to cry. When the carrier is used as a cradle, it is simply tied to the beams of the roof of the little huts in which the Pueblo Indians live by long ropes. The cradle can then be swung like a pendulum. The Pueblo Indian is very fond of his children who obey their parents absolutely and uncomplainingly. They are seldom punished or spoken to harshly
