Native American Made Mudhead Katsina Doll by Sammie Walker (Navajo-Hopi)

Gifts of Native Spirit

The Mudhead (Koyemsi). Originally from Zuni Pueblo, the Koyemsi is another of the clown kachinas. He leads the racers into the village and challenges villagers in contests to prove their strength. During the pauses in a dance, Mudheads may engage in games with the boys and girls in the audience. At other times, only a single Mudhead may appear as a drummer for a group. Should a dancer not have the proper mask or be late in arriving, he can easily become a Mudhead by donning that mask. These Katsinam appear in almost every Hopi dance. This is a wonderful piece that is created in a style that is unusual today. 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.
