A little history of the Kachina Doll. 
The Kachinas are known to be the spirits of deities, natural elements or animals, or the deceased ancestors of the Hopi. Prior to each Kachinas ceremony, the men of the village will spend days studiously making figures in the likeness of the Kachina represented in that particular ceremony. The figures are then passed on to the daughters of the village by the Giver Kachina during the ceremony. Following the ceremony, the figures are hung on the walls of the pueblo and are meant to be studied in order to learn the characteristics of that certain Kachina. Edward Kennard, co-author of Hopi Kachinas, says concerning the purpose of the Kachina figure, “Essentially it is a means of education; it is a gift at dance-time; it is a decorative article for the home, but above all it is a constant reminder of the Kachinas."

Navajo Kachina dolls are figures carved, typically from cottonwood root. Kachina doll making is part of the culture and tradition of the Navajo native tribe. Although unlike Hopi and other Kachinas, the Kachina dolls of Navajo do not have deeper connection to the beliefs of the Navajo people, many centuries ago, native tribes including Navajo tribe used Kachinas to pray to the spirits for abundant harvest, good weather and good life. Each tribe may have their own design and structure of Kachina dolls.
