Coeur d’Alene Second Chief Peter Wildshoe commissioned a tribal member to craft three dolls for the Smithsonian in 1901. The dolls are now part of a new exhibit at the Cataldo Mission. The exhibit will be open to the public on Oct. 15.

Bertha Swan, front left, was on hand for the installation of the three dolls at the Cataldo Mission in Cataldo, Idaho, on Thursday. She is the great-granddaughter of former Coeur d’Alene Second Chief Peter Wildshoe.
