Kachina Guard ~

Arizona is home to the Hopi Indian tribe whose traditions are handed down through kachina dolls. The dolls are both decorative and educational. They are also highly prized collectors items! This magnificent kachina figure serves as a mailbox guard. Does anyone collect these dolls and/or can identify this figure?


  1. What a great mailbox set-up. Years ago I saw John Wayne's Kachina doll collection...very beautiful!

  2. And I think that Barry Goldwater had an impressive collection of these dolls as well.
