Hopi Hochani Kachina 11.5" x 5" x 4" Contemporary
- Circa: Contemporary
- Size: 11.5'' x 5'' x 4''
Acquired from a private collection in Arizona. The name Hochani is the Keresan term for Chief or Headman. According to legend, he was Hopi man who went to live in the Rio Grande during difficult times and returned bearing gifts for the Hopi. He may appear in Kiva Dances in the winter, but most is often seen in the Mixed Kachina Dances in the spring. Due to the fragile nature of these dolls, we do not guarantee their condition. Dolls may have missing accouterments, repaired limbs, or broken parts.
