This is a traditional Hopi
Cradle kachina doll, handmade
by Hopi artist Vincent
Sohanasomtaka. Cradle kachina
dolls are given to Hopi Indian
girls when they are babies.
The kachina doll is considered to be an
actual child in the Hopi household.
Children are encouraged to play with the
doll as though it was a little brother or
sister. Girls are given 2 dolls each year
until they are grown.
In some Navajo and Apache Indian groups
kachinas are considered sacred, placed on
shelves and sprinkled with corn meal, or
adorned with sacred medicine roots.
