Making the Case for Baskets

By Rebekah Powers

A collection of baskets is a collection of time: the time it took for the grasses and reeds and bark to grow, the time to gather and the time to weave..

Hopi Kachinas by Chester Poleyestewa

By Rebekah Powers

The Kachina doll was and is made for Native use by Hope fathers and uncles to give to their daughters or nieces; primarily the doll is hung on the wall or from the rafters of the house so that it may be seen at all times. The purpose is to teach their children about the different Kachina masks, their outfits, and body painting. Therefore, the doll has to be as perfect as possible, and certainly so in mask features. This may explain in part why the earlier dolls were accurate and detailed outline, often with more suggestions of arms and legs.
