  An old photograph of a Papoose with an Apache Baby.  

A papoose (from the Algonquian papoos, meaning "child") is an American English loanword whose present meaning is "a Native American Indian child" (regardless of tribe) or, even more generally, any child, usually used as a term of endearment, often in the context of the child's mother. The word came originally from the Narragansett tribe.

The term is also used when referring to Cradle boards and other child carriers, which were used by Native American Indians and went by many names.
