When Innu families moved camp, everyone had a job to do, even the smallest child. Dolls were made and filled with tea for children to carry during the move. When the group needed tea, the doll would be opened and some tea was taken out. When the doll was empty, moss was put inside so the child could still play with it. The tea doll communicates one example of Innu cultural values – each community member does their part for all to succeed.
