Vintage Native American Indian Carved Chief Head Doll?

This is a vintage or antique Native American Indian hand carved and painted head of a chief with headdress.. I am not sure what this would have been used for. A doll? Puppet? or maybe something for a tobacco store from years ago? Inches tall and in Excellent condition with minor wear great patina.. great display! Buyer pays 5.00 shipping in U.S. Please check my other items for more more Indian things from this estate. I will combine shipping.
