Winter: A Time of Reflection for Hopi Kachina Carvers

As winter approaches the Hopi begin to say goodbye to their kachinas for the season. The Soyal ceremony marks the end of the year, when the kachinas return to live inside their home in the San Francisco Peaks. Now is a time of reflection and planning for next year on the Hopi pueblos. Many of the carvers will craft replicas of the latest dancers appearing during the Soyal. We will have several carvings of the katsina seen during this time. Come in and admire the Hopi craftsmanship exhibited in the last of the years’ katsina. Carvers whose work is represented include Lawrence Dallas, Raymond Chee, Cedric Honyumptewa and Silas Roy, among others.
