Kachina Doll LegendKachina - pronounced (kuh CHEE' nah). Kachina Dolls are carved wooden figures, originally made from the cottonwood root. Many are still crafted from pine or cottonwood. Kachina Dolls are spiritual messengers thought to bring blessings. The Kachina doll was originally made for religious and educational purposes, helping the children learn about the spirits and messages of the Gods. Kachina's are not considered Gods, but spirit messangers thought to petition the Gods to help in all areas of American Indians way of life. Including bringing rain for agriculture, pray (animals) for food, and peace and prosperity to the tribe. Each Kachina Doll we carry is assembled by hand and hand painted and has slightly different accessories and clothing. There are over 250 Kachina dolls representing spirits of various things encountered in the daily lives of the Indians. Our kachina's are not made from cottonwood, they are made of wood and initialed by the Navajo who crafted the Kachina doll. This allows us to bring a unique piece of Native American art to the public at affordable prices.
Many dolls which look identical may have a different name. And many of the dolls that look entirely different may have the same name. This all depends on the person who created the individual doll. Each Kachina Doll is initialled by the artist who created it. Each Kachina Doll is assembled by hand and is hand painted, and has different accessories and clothing, and there may be a slight variation between the dolls pictured and those received when ordering.
