- Mary B. Billie in the early process of making a Seminole doll - Big Cypress Reservation, Florida
- Photographed on July 15, 1980.
- Accompanying note: "'She makes the head first and then puts the body together. She'll make the heads like maybe she's going to make a hundred. Sometimes she makes fifty and then she cuts up the body the same amount and then she starts working on it.'"
- Mary B. Billie has been a dollmaker since she was 17. She learned the skill by watching her mother, who had learned it from Mary's grandmother.
