Beautifully made Eagle Kachina!

The Eagle or Kwahu Kachina appears in the Kiva Dances in March, or during the Powamu Ceremony. His dance resembles the eagle's motion of flight. The dance is also a prayer for more eagles. Each dancer is pressured to imitate every step and cry of the eagle to absolute perfection. Eagles are honored guests among the Hopis and they are given gifts just as the Hopi children are. At midsummer, they are ceremonially smothered and plucked of all their plumage. Although Third Mesa portrays their Eagle Kachina with an all black body, Second Mesa's Eagle Kachina has a yellow and red body. Birds in general, have always played an important role in the Hopi ceremonies and tradition.

Joseph Duwyenie is an experienced carver. Carving is a family tradition that was taught to him by his father, and like his father, he has passed it on to his sons. Joeseph started to carve in 1970. He has a distinctive style in the way that he carves the feathers and wings of his Kachinas. He also likes to change the style of colors on each Kachina that he makes. Joe enjoys the time he takes to carve and paint each Kachina doll..

This Kachina Doll is made of cottonwood root and is signed on the bottom of the base "Joe Duwyenie". 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!

    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.
