"Kachinas are great spirits associated with natural elements. They are represented by richly detailed dolls such as this one. They were made first to teach children, then became trade items. Adults dance their seasonal dances in similar costumes. This particular figure represents the Havasupai tribe, just west of the Hopi. The Smith Museum has a large collection off kachinas."
