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.

    Most reliable shipping online!!
    Posted by Donna S. | Reviewing Kachina-Dolls.com | Posted on
    Love purchasing kachina dolls from this site because i know i wont have to worry about it arriving damaged or getting lost. Buying such fragile pieces of art online is always worrisome as some companies just throw it in a box and the carriers aren't always as delicate as they should be with them. From experience Kachina-Dolls goes the extra step and individually packages each doll with care so that it arrives in perfect condition and can withstand the transit conditions. Thanks for always having such a great selection of affordable kachinas!

    sacred memories
    Posted by Rose Jensen | Reviewing Kachina-Dolls.com | Posted on
    When i grew up, i remember my parents taking me to my grandfathers house out in Arizona every summer where he would sit and tell me the legends of each one of his Kachina dolls. Our story time wasn't out of children books, it was of the legends of the Navajo tribe. Those summers are the ones i will never forget and being able to have a few of the kachina dolls shipped out of the state i once used to visit each summer as a child, means more than words can describe.
