A real "Groaner"

    Artefacts are a major portion of an American-Indian reservation's economy.

    Annually, thousands of tourists visit reservations and most will not leave

    without purchasing at least one memento of the traditional Indian culture.

     

    One enterprising Indian was able to outsell his competitors in the sale of

    wooden dolls by selling them at only a fraction of the cost others had to

    charge.

     

    On examination of his dolls they found that where traditionally hard wood

    was used, this Indian would use cheap pine on which he glued thin pieces of

    fine mahogany, thus being able to produce the dolls at only a fraction of

    the cost.

     

     

     

     

    While he claimed his dolls were still authentic, his competitors complained

    that it was only a cheap Sioux Veneer.
