Jingle Dancer Katsina Doll by Sammie Walker (Navajo-Hopi)

Jingle  Dancer Katsina Doll Dress dancing has great spiritual power, which originates as energy generated from the sound of the cones that sing out to the spirits when the dancer lifts her feet in time with the drum. The very act of dancing in this dress is a prayer for healing, and often spectators, musicians, and other dancers will make gifts of tobacco to a dancer and request that she pray for an ill family member while she dances. Very few of the artists make the Native American dolls this way. The action is wonderful and the carving, painting and details are very accurate.

Native American Hopi Kachina Dolls:

Hopi Katsinam are crafted to acknowledge celestial beings, significant animals to the Hopi people, and the ancestors who help with their harvest, raising their spirits as well as raising their children. The Hopi people believe that the Katsina dancers possess supernatural powers, though they are men from the village wearing masks and feathered costumes.

There are hundreds of Hopi Katsinam, “personati ons” of supernatural beings, important animals and ancestors who help the Hopi people raise their crops, their children, and their spirits. The Katsina dancers are men wearing masks–each of which represents a particular Katsina–and paint and feathered costumes. Everyone in the village, aside from the children, knows that the Katsina dancers are actually men from the village, though Katsinam are still believed to have supernatural powers. Much of the value in these dances is found to be instructing the young. Hand carved and collector items. Signed and numbered.
