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".

    Easy process
    Posted by Henry Oswin | Reviewing Kachina-Dolls.com | Posted on
    Navigating around computers doesn't come as easy to me as it does to other people these days. I find it complicate to use website to order things online on most websites. This website made it easy for me to find the exact piece that i was looking to buy, as well as complete my order.

    I have been collecting Kachina Dolls since the 90s. Its great to find a website that has such a diverse collection at such reasonable prices. Not many places online sell such rare and unique pieces of art, so upon finding your website it was like striking gold. Your descriptions are true to the dolls that i have purchased and its nice to see that you also provide the legend behind each one.

    Bringing the Southwest to me!
    Posted by Laurie Jenkins | Reviewing Kachina-Dolls.com | Posted on
    I grew up in New Mexico with my grandparent where southwest spirit was everywhere. Since then i grew up and got married and had my own family and moved to Maine. Kachina-Dolls helps me build a little of that Southwestern spirit in my own home and even though were states apart, their spirit is still here with me every day.
