Highly detailed Kachina Doll!



The Nataska or Ogre Kachina is part of the fearsome team that accompany the Soyoko when she terrorizes the children. He usually comes as a pair, standing behind the Soyoko when she bargains for the lives of the children. He would stomp his feet and drags his saw in order to intimidate the children. Stories states that he would seek children and snatch them home to eat them. Together with his dark clothing and broad face, the children are very petrified of him during the ceremonies. The feathered fan on his headdress is made of turkey feathers and is placed together to make him look even taller. 


Derrick Hayah is a talented kachina carver who always tries to test his abilities. He has spent many years carving many different kinds of kachinas and each were made in different sizes.

    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.
