The "original" kachinas were supernatural spirits and beings. These entities once lived among the Indian people and taught them basic living skills for well-being—how to hunt, how to live in harmony with nature and bring rain and fertility to the ground, how to heal sickness, and how to mete out discipline. When these "original" kachinas left the pueblos, they gave their gifts to the people, who still carry on their traditions. Each kachina therefore has a specific function and is believed to be the spirit of an animal, bird, plant, object, place, or person. Originally, the kachina doll was devised as a teaching tool given to one's children as part of their cultural and religious training. We feature Hopi kachinas by such well known artists as Lawrence Dallas, Bryon Kewenvoyouma, Wilmer Kaye, Keith Torres, Mike Talahytewa, Sterling McRae, and many others.

Northwest Coast art — Masks, drums, and other works
Anderson's carries hand-carved masks, painted drums, and other pieces crafted by Northwest Coast Indian tribes that live along the areas stretching from southern Alaska to Washington. These peoples have developed a beautiful art, incorporating both their religious beliefs and folklore. Although the art and crafts vary by tribe and village, pieces are surprisingly complementary.
