Katsina dolls are an important and cherished part of the Hopi culture.  These dolls are representations of one of the hundreds of Katsinam, or Hopi spirit guides, who are believed to live primarily in the San Francisco Peaks of Arizona. They descend from the mountains as the winter season wanes to help villagers tend to the fields, care for the children, and tackle any other major task required to encourage the community and land to flourish. The Katsinam stay through late July when the planting and growing seasons have ended. At that time they take their leave of the Hopi and return to their home in the mountains of Arizona. During the time that the Katsinam are visiting the Hopi villages, numerous dances are held to both celebrate a particular natural event or remind the people of the village of the significant presence of the Katsinam, and to help the children learn about these sacred beings and what each of them represents. During these dances, the Hopi men will don costumes and will "personate" an individual Katsina, which is represented by a specific mask, color patterns and physical characteristics. Full-figure Katsinam are carved, to represent a specific Katsina and to help the child become acquainted with that particular spirit. These full-figure carvings, referred to as dolls, are carefully carved from the strong, light root of the cottonwood tree and then painted with the particular colors of the specific Katsina the doll represents.

What are Kachinas?  There are hundreds of Hopi Katsinam, "personations" of supernatural beings, important animals and ancestors who help the Hopi people raise their crops, their children, and their spirits. The Katsina dancers are men wearing masks--each of which represents a particular Katsina--and paint and feathered costumes. Everyone in the village, aside from the children, knows that the Katsina dancers are actually men from the village, though Katsinam are still believed to have supernatural powers. Much of the value in these dances is found to be instructing the young. Signed and numbered. 

Native American Hopi Carved Aha Chief Katsina DollAha or Kuzrua is one of the Chief Katsinam of Second Mesa and appears only on this mesa during Bean Dance.

Native American Hopi Carved Ahola Chief Katsina Doll by Henry NahaThe Ahola is a Hopi Chief Katsina of very high order. He is considered an elder and a very wise chief. The Ahola appears at the Bean Dance (Powamuya) ceremony to open the beginning of the Katsina season. The Ahola brings prayers for a long and healthful life. The Ahola and Ahola Mana go from house to house, making their appearance. On the outside walls of each home, the Ahola draws four horizontal marks with corn meal. The women inside the house come out and sprinkle the Ahola with cornmeal and at the same time take some corn seeds from the Ahola Mana's basket. The two leave and go to the kiva entrance and face each other. He holds his staff out for support and strength and bends his right knee and continues kneeling in rhythmic motion. He calls out to the kiva chief and the two discuss the arrival of the Katsinam for the year.  9" $750 Native American Hopi Carved Ahola Chief Katsina Doll by Henry Naha
Native American Hopi Carved Yellow Corn Maiden Katsina Doll by Ron HonyoutiThe Katsin Mana, or Katsina Maiden, is the most ubiquitous of all the women who appear with other Katsinam. If she is carrying yellow corn, she is known as the Yellow Corn Maiden, similarly blue corn, etc. This is a Yellow Corn Maiden. She also changes her name to that of the Katsina with whom she is dancing, although her appearance does not change. Her presence is a prayer for a bountiful corn harvest.   11.5"  $600  Native American Hopi Carved Yellow Corn Maiden Katsina Doll by Ron Honyouti
Native American Hopi Carved Badger (Honan) Healer Katsina Doll by Keith TorresThe Badger (Honan) has great knowledge of roots and herbs and is sought for his wisdom and his ability to cure the sick by using herbal potions. The Badger Katsina appears in the summer dances. He is not only a healer and a chief; he also dances for rain for the crops. He appears at all three Mesas. This wonderful carving by Keith Torres shows the Badger from Second Mesa dancing, wrapped in a manta to keep warm, in the cold desert mornings.  11" $675 Native American Hopi Carved Badger Healer Katsina Doll by Keith Torres
Native American Hopi Carved Billy Goat Fertility Katsina Doll by Henry NahaThe Billy Goat is an animal Katsina who appears during the fast parades and in the summer. He is rarely carved as a Katsina doll and appears occasionally in plaza dances, always with the clowns. He is one of the copulation Katsinam and is interested in copulating with everything in sight. To his large testicles beneath his loin cloth is attached a sack full of fruit and other goodies, and toward the end of the dance the aunt of the man personating the Billy Goat cuts off the sack and gives the fruit and other goodies to spectators.   8.25"  $750 Native American Hopi Carved Billy Goat Fertility Katsina Doll by Henry Naha
Native American Hopi Carved White Buffalo (Mosairu) Great Spiritual Protector Katsina Doll by Henry NahaLike most animal Katsinam, the Buffalo (Mosairu) dances to increase his kind. This Katsina is very well known and is most powerful. He can kill any evil thoughts and is a great spiritual protector.   9" $750 Native American Hopi Carved Buffalo Great Spiritual Protector Katsina Doll by Henry Naha
Native American Hopi Carved Clown Katsina Doll with Flour Sack by Richard GormanThe Clown (Koshare) Summer Clown, is known by many other names, including Kaisale (Winter Clown),Tsuku (Second and Third Mesa), Koyaala, and Hano(First Mesa). The Clown has a complex ceremonial role, giving wisdom and advice as well as poking fun at unacceptable behavior. The Clown is said to be a glutton, always overdoing it whether he is making fun of the dancers, trying to get the children to behave during ceremonies, or commenting on Hopi behavior. They are generally amusing and do things that no Hopi or anyone else would want to be caught doing. They are often depicted with a watermelon. This one is holding a prized bag of flour and licking his lips in anticipation of baked goods.   10.5"  $750 Native American Hopi Carved Clown Katsina Doll with Flour Sack by Richard Gorman 
Native American Hopi Carved Crow Mother (Angwusnasomtaka) Katsina Doll by Bennett SockymaCrow Mother (Angwusnasomtaka), Mother of the Whipper Katsinam and considered by many Hopi to be the Mother of all Katsinam. She is Crow Bride (Angwushahai-i) on Third Mesa probably because she talks or sings and comes dressed entirely in white. On the other Mesas she is Crow Mother. She appears during the Bean Dance (Powamuya) on all three Mesas. During the Powamuya, she supervises the initiation of the children into the Katsina Society and carries the yucca whips with which they are struck by the Hu Katsina. Later in the same ceremony, she leads other Katsinam into the village bearing in her arms a basket of corn kernels and bean sprouts to symbolically start the new growing season.   14.5"  $750  Native American Hopi Carved Crow Mother Katsina Doll by Bennett Sockyma
Native American Hopi Carved Cumulus Cloud Girl Katsina Doll by Tom CollatetaThe Cloud Katsinam are responsible for the rain that moistens the arid Southwest desert which helps the Hopi people grow the crops needed for survival. This particular Cumulus Cloud Girl (Tukwinong Mana) is the sister of Tukwinong. He is basically an assistant to her brother. The tray in front of her is filled with corn meal and divided into the four directional colors. The white at the top of the head represents the top of the clouds; the colors at the side show the darker sections of the cloud as it takes on water; the darkest color on the underside of the headpiece and on the face illustrate the underside of the raincloud where it is darkest.  11.5"  $750 Native American Hopi Carved Cumulus Cloud Girl Katsina Doll by Tom Collateta
Native American Hopi Carved Wolf (Kweo) Hunter Katsina Doll by Johnny LomatewamaThe Wolf (Kweo) is often seen in the Soyohim Dances accompanied by the Deer or Mountain Sheep Katsina. He carries a stick that represents the trees and bushes that he uses to hide in whenever he stalks his prey. The Wolf Katsina's sharp teeth are always visible and, sometimes, his lolling tongue. His sharp teeth are visible to boast the wolf's prowess as a hunter. When he appears in the dance with the Deer or Mountain Sheep, they are always wary of him because of their natural relationship as prey for the Wolf. After the dance, it is customary for the Hopi to offer the Kweo Katsina cornmeal and, in return, the Kweo Katsina blesses them on their hunt.  13" $750 Native American Hopi Carved Wolf Hunter Katsina Doll by Johnny Lomatewama
