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.
