Hopi Kachina Dolls

  • These uniquely Hopi artworks are called "dolls,"
    but that is a bit of a misnomer. Kachinas (or
    katsinas) are actually stylized religious icons,
    meticulously carved from cottonwood root and
    painted to represent figures from Hopi mythology.

  • Tcof
  • (Antelope Kachina)
  • Usually accompanied by the Wolf Kachina. He makes
    the rains come and the grass grow. Appears in
    Mixed Dances.
  • Kachina were stylized figures that often
    combined human and animal forms together into one
    figure.

  • Suprai Kanin
  • (Cohonino Kachina)
  • Represents the Havasupai neighbors to the west.

    animals, wind, rocks, plants, rain, etc.
