Navajo Kachina Dolls

Here at Alltribes Native American Art we deal directly with several Navajo Kachina artists in the great American Southwest.

A Navajo Kachina doll is a spirit being in western Pueblo cosmology and religious practices. In later times, a kachina Doll cult had spread to more eastern Pueblos. The term also refers to the Kachina dancers, a masked member of the tribe who dress up as a Navajo Kachina Doll spirit for religious ceremonies..

A Navajo Kachina Doll can represent anything in the natural world or cosmos, from a revered ancestor to an element, a location, a quality, a natural phenomenon, or a concept. There are more than 400 different Kachinas in Hopi and Pueblo cultures. Navajo Kachinas are understood as having human-like relationships; they may have uncles, sisters, and grandmothers, and may marry and have children. Although not worshiped, each is viewed as a powerful being who, if given veneration and respect, can use their particular power for human good, bringing rainfall, healing, fertility, or protection.
