With the wizened old chief set to step down, young Linny dreams of being chosen as his replacement. As she struggles to pass his test, Linny learns with the help of her family what it really takes to become chief...in the most unexpected way. This story is told with the help of traditional cornhusk dolls. Corn dolls protect the home, livestock, and personal wellness of the maker and their family. Cornhusk dolls have been made in some Indigenous cultures since the beginning of corn agriculture more than one thousand years ago, and continue to be made today.
