The Hopi People live in Northeastern Arizona. Kachina dolls are made by the Hopi tribe and represent living and dead beings. This is an early version of a Kachina carved from cottonwood and painted with colors derived from plants and clay. This version was collected by John and Lucy Jerome about 1895 and remained with the family when La Hacienda was designed and built in 1901-1902.
