The most traditional of all of the North American tribes, the Hopis carry on a ceremonial life that evolved from thousands of years of relationship to the striking lands of the Southwest and Mexico. They are farmers who miraculously grow corn, beans and squash in the sand in a land that averages only 10 of moisture. A reverent people, their life revolves around the ceremonial cycle of the year. Hopi is known as a place of power where humans could call forth the assistance of nature to support their existence in this arid land. The power of their faith is immense. To derive water in this desert land, they developed a complex religion to secure supernatural assistance in fulfilling their needs. One element of this religion are the Kachinas. Kachinas are the spirit essence of everything in the real world. The Kachinas represent game, domestic plants and animals, birds, insects, even death itself. The creative force of the sun and the abstract power inherent in neighboring tribes are visualized as kachinas. Our Hopi Old Style Katsinam are carved by hand with the careful eye of a genuine Native Southwestern American Indian artist. Each piece is carved to include the specialized elements of each individual Katsina, just as our full-figure Katsinam capture the unique qualities of each spirit. Many artists have chosen to shift from the strictly traditional carving methods to include detailed hands and feet, while still keeping the overall traditional style. Still carved from the strong but lightweight cottonwood root, the artists may choose to expand their palette with modern paints and painting techniques. However, each color is still carefully chosen to stay true to the representative appearance of the particular Katsina it represents. Hopi Old Style Katsinam. Hopi Old Style Katsina dolls are those carved in the traditional style, often referred to as Early Traditional Style. This style dates back to the late 19th and early 20th century and represents the most traditional depiction of the Katsinam before outsiders began to influence the Native American cultures. These early Katsina dolls were highly simplistic in form and were most often flat with few if any three-dimensional elements, though some were more rounded. Each doll was intricately painted with dyes and pigments made from native minerals like iron and magnesium, whatever was readily available in the area local to the Hopi people. Some paints were plant-based, though these colors were not as vibrant and did not stand up over time. Most of our items are Unique One-of-a-Kind and subject to availability.
