Skookum Dolls were made in the early 20th century up to the 1960's by a woman named Mary McAboy in Missoula Montana. While they are not Native made, the name Skookum is a Chinook jargon word meaning strong, powerful or excellent. Skookum dolls do not have arms or hands and are wrapped in a blanket giving them the look of folded arms.
