Kachina Dolls

Kachinas are believed to be the spirits of animals, birds, objects, or hunters and warriors. They are carved from the root of the Cottonwood tree, and are used in ceremonies and the religious training of Native children. They are the most common among the Hopi and Zuni peoples. Navajo artisans also create Kachina dolls, but these are used purely for art forms.
