    Finding this website was a true gift! Their affordable prices and large inventory of different dolls, makes it easy for me to share my Native American culture with those around me. I find pieces for myself that symbolically represent different parts of my life as well that serve as a reminder of who i am today and i dont have to break the bank purchasing them.

    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.
