The creation of the Kachina Doll has been going on for centuries. Most recognized are the Hopi Kachinas, made of cottonwood, carved, and painted to invoke various spirits of the Hopi culture. Kachina-Dolls.com is proud to announce their new Navajo Kachina Doll line. This new line complements the Hopi line in various ways.
The newly arrived Navajo Kachina dolls represent a different culture of the Native American tapestry that is prevalent in the Southwest U.S. The Navajo use a variety of materials to construct their Kachinas. They still begin with a wood base and wood form to be carved and painted. Once painted, several adornments are added that can be made of real fur, faux fur, leather, suede, and feathers. These added pieces help complete the story of each Kachina doll.
Hopi Kachina dolls are known for their intricate carving and painting, all united to tell a great story of war, love, protection, and even wisdom. Anyone bestowed with a Hopi Kachina doll has been blessed and revered. All Kachinas can take several days to complete depending on the level of carving, painting and detail.
“At Kachina-Dolls.com we are proud to work with Native American artisans who craft these unique dolls”, said David Stenston, spokesperson for Kachina-Dolls. “We know that our customers love the rich story behind each doll and the blessings they bring to their home. We are extremely excited to expand our catalog with new Navajo Kachina Dolls.”
Whether the Kachina is Hopi or Navajo, every doll gives a particular story, warning or blessing. These dolls have held various uses throughout Native American history and now can be placed in any home to help protect and ward off negative spirits. View the complete catalog at Kachina-Dolls.
