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 Blue Ahote Hunter Katsina Doll by Preston YouvellaA'hote is considered a good hunter. He may appear in any of the directional colors, the two most common being the Yellow (Sikyahote) or the Blue (Sakwahote). The A'hote is the Grand Katsina Uncle of the Mixed Katsina Group and appears in the Mixed Dances. The A'hote is painted in two different ways, one version appears with planets on his mask. The other A'hote version has a "split" mask with different colors on each side. Both seem to be derived from a Plains Indian because he wears a long trailing eagle feather headdress.   9" Native American Hopi Carved Blue Ahote Hunter Katsina Doll by Preston Youvella  $450  BUY NOW

Native American Hopi Carved Aholi Priest Katsina Doll by Deloria AdamsAholi is a Native American Hopi high priest who appears only on Third Mesa and in the company of Eototo during the Powamuya Ceremony. This Katsina is the ancient of the Pikyas Clan. Legend has it that Aholi, left behind to fight a rear guard action, followed Eototo through migrations that took them from Mexico to Utah and from the Colorado River to the Rio Grande and back to their present location on Third Mesa. The two Katsinam come out of the Chief Kiva during Powamuya and perform the rites described under Eototo. Aholi is a beautiful Katsina in his cloak and tall blue helmet, but he is of less importance than the very plain Eototo and is often called Eototo's Lieutenant. When Eototo places his cloud mark on the ground, Aholi puts the butt of his staff upon it and swinging the staff around calls out, "A--holi-i-i-i" and then follows his chief to the next mark. His actions appear to be reinforcing Eototo's actions.   13"  $520 Native American Hopi Carved Aholi Priest Katsina Doll by Deloria Adams   BUY NOW

Native American Hopi Carved Butterfly Maid (Palhik Mana) Katsina Doll by Norman CuchPalhik Mana is a Butterfly Maiden; not a Katsina, but a woman dancer. Though at the dances the Butterfly Maiden is not masked or hooded, she generally appears this way when carved as a doll. Her tablita (headdress) carries symbols for corn and butterflies, which pollinate the corn helping to bring a good harvest. She generally appears in August, as that is when the butterflies appear. The Butterfly Dance, a traditional social dance of the Hopi, is held in August after the gathering of the harvest and presentation of the Snake Dance. It is a thanksgiving dance for the harvest, chiefly for the corn crop.  Native American Hopi Carved Butterfly Maiden Doll by Norman Cuch  9.5"  $450  BUY NOW
Native American Hopi Carved Red Tail Hawk (Palakwayo) Guard Katsina Doll by Donald SockymaAs a general rule the Red Tail Hawk (Palakwayo) appears individually, when it functions more as sergeant-at-arms or policeman. In this role they either enforce an action, such as community cleaning, or act as guards to prevent the approach of anyone or anything to the proximity of a location or ceremony. When the Red Tail Hawk appears with other Guard or Warrior Katsinam in a group they are functioning as warriors. They surround the more sacred Katsinam as a small but ferocious army of fearsome creatures.    9" $450  Native American Hopi Carved Red Tail Hawk Guard Katsina Doll by Donald Sockyma BUY NOW
Native American Hopi Carved Sunface (Tawa) Katsina Doll by Lendell RoySunface (Tawa) Katsina represents the spirit of the sun. This leader of ceremonies brings warmth, shelter for the old, a bright future, and playfulness for the young and is considered one of the more powerful Katsinam because the Sun is thought to be the brightest and largest of all the stars and essential to life and growth. This is a wonderful Sunface by Lendell.   10"  $520  Native American Hopi Carved Sunface Katsina Doll by Lendell Roy BUY NOW

Native American Hopi Carved Mudhead (Koyemsi) Katsina Doll by Jacob WarnerThe Mudhead (Koyemsi) leads the racers into the village and challenges villagers in contests to prove their strength. During the rests in a dance, Mudheads may engage in games with the boys and girls in the audience. At other times, only a single Mudhead may appear as a drummer for a group. Should a dancer not have the proper mask or be late in arriving, he can easily become a Mudhead by donning that mask. These Katsinam appear in almost every Hopi dance. This particular Mudhead is the first full-figure Katsina that Jacob Warner has carved. He did a great job.  9" $450  Native American Laguna Carved Hopi Mudhead Katsina Doll by Jacob Warner
Native American Hopi Carved Wolf (Kweo) Hunter Katsina Doll by Harry BertThe 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.  9" Native American Hopi Carved Wolf Hunter Katsina Doll by Harry Bert $450  BUY NOW
