This is a truly captivating Kachina that is packed with detail.

Tasap yeibichai is the grandfather of the Navajo Kachina, and is one of the more enjoyable features of the Navajo Kachina Dance. He does not speak; instead he acts out “in a comical way” whatever he wants. He starts the dance, acting as a leader in both the singing and the dancing. His dance step is a sort of Lively exaggeration, with the occasional pause for comic relief, such as a request for food. All of his acts are done in pantomimes that make the audience laugh.

Woody Sewemaenewa showed the talent required to be a great Kachina carver at a very early age. Since he was to young to be initiated as a carver, he would sneak into his father's shed and carve in secret. One day when his kachinas were discovered, everyone in his family knew that Woody had the gift to become a carver. Then, he was guided and initiated properly by his father. Now, Woody's work is known and recognized due to his hard work and artistic ability. Woody loves to constantly carve kachinas and his passion is seen in the different styles of kachinas that he makes. He was born on November 27, 1969 in Keams Canyon, Arizona. Woody belongs to the Greasewood Clan.

This Kachina Doll is made of cottonwood root and is signed on the bottom of the base "Woody Sewemaenewa ". If you would like to see a picture of the signature on the bottom of the base or more pictures of the doll please let us know. We are PROUD to bring you another amazing Kachina Doll!

    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.
