Evangeline Garcia and Helen Piaso

Evangeline Garcia and Helen Piaso are sisters that have teamed up to make authentic Navajo handmade dolls. Evangeline was born in 1959 and Helen was born in 1941. They were born into the Navajo Nation. They were inspired to continue the family tradition, and to learn the art of doll making from their Mother, Hannah Garcia. Evangeline was 14 years old when she began experimenting with cloth dolls. Helen was 20 years old when she decided to make cloth dolls. They were also economically motivated to create a form of art.

They were taught all the fundamentals of sewing. They use cloth, sequins, beads, wool, yarn, and cotton, to stitch together cloth dolls and figurines like: corn grinders, horses, story tellers, and Navajo ladies with babies.
