The Buffalo Dancer or Kocha Mosairu is not a Kachina, but rather a social dancer. It is usually seen in ceremonies in January on First Mesa. It is a doll that most carvers do not mind doing as part of their repertoire. His popularity began from the works of Alvin James Makya who made one of the first dolls. It is now a favorite among collectors. All animals are an important part of the Hopi culture, they are believed to provide guidance, health, and protection.

Award winning artist Keith Torres and his work, can be seen in the book, "Katchina Dolls and Their Carvers" by Theda Bassman. He is one of the most creative Hopi Carvers around. With his own style of carving, Keith has shown an incredible art talent, his carving and detailing combination have produced among the best Kachina dolls to date. He puts a lot of time and effort into his Kachina Dolls, trying to make them as perfect as he sees them in his own mind. Starting in 1985, Keith was taught how to carve by Edward Poleahla. One of the things he enjoys most in the creation of a Kachina doll is the painting. Keith was born on December 14th, 1963 in Window Rock, Arizona. He is a part of the Coyote and Fire Clans of the Hopi Tribe.

This Kachina Doll is made of cottonwood root and is signed on the side of the base "Keith Torres".

    Posted by Nora Lott | Reviewing Kachina-Dolls.com | Posted on
    I have to give props to the customer service representatives who work here. I am not a collector of Kachina dolls but i wanted to purchase one as a gift for some dear to me. The customer service reps were patient with me and answered all of my questions in guiding me to buy the doll that would be the most meaningful to the recipient. The experience was superb and i truly appreciate the time you guys took with me to make sure that the gift was exactly what i wanted.

    Outstanding Quality
    Posted by Kevin Acostin | Reviewing Kachina-Dolls.com | Posted on
    When i buy from Kachina Dolls i know that i am getting a quality product! I have purchased a few Hopi Kachina Dolls and the detail in each piece is beyond words. Knowing that each piece was hand carved by a talented Hopi artist is remarkable. The detail each piece has from top to bottom is something that you can find anywhere else.

    Pieces made with Pride
    Posted by Wayne Kuntz | Reviewing Kachina-Dolls.com | Posted on
    I have to give credit to you guys for having such quality kachina dolls! I recently purchased one of Hopi Kachina dolls for my future father in law and i must say that it really was a gift he appreciated. It wasn't just a regular gift that was made overseas like most things people gift these days. It was a hand crafted gift made with Native American pride that was meaningful, given that he is part Hopi.

    Unique work of art!
    Posted by Genevive Marshall | Reviewing Kachina-Dolls.com | Posted on
    Since i move to the East coast, i piece of me got left behind in Albuquerque. Since finding this website i have been able to find that missing piece by showcasing these unique pieces of Native American art in my house. Not only does it make for a unique and spiritual house decor that no one else has out here in the east coast, it also brings me a little bit closer to home and my memories there.
