Zuni Kachina Carvings
Rare Miniature Cottonwood Kachina Carvings

In both Hopi and Zuni Pueblos, Kachinas play an important role.

These carvings are accurate (and difficult to find) replicas of the Kachinas
that are seen at Pueblo ceremonies. Do not be mislead by Navajo (the Navajo people do
not have Kachinas) and offshore imitations.

Modern Zuni Kachinas are still carved and presented like old, traditional Pueblo
Kachinas. Zuni carvers use an assortment of materials in their Kachina dolls, whereas
 the Hopi carve their Kachina dolls entirely from wood. Both Hopi and Zuni
carvers use only dried root from the Cottonwood tree for their
Kachinas. Any other wood is not authentic and
 its use is discouraged.
