About the kachina

Kachinas are given in hope of future wealth and wellbeing, and are often used teaching tool the next generation. These figures bridge young and old, as well as teach non-natives about the spiritual world. Each year, Kachinas come to bring life and renewal, when they return to the spiritual world they take the prayers of the native people with them.

The left-Handed kachina is a mirror of other kachinas, carrying his gear opposite of regular kachinas. He moves with odd bobbing and mincing steps, and is considered to be an excellent hunter. He is shown here holding a deer to exemplify his hunting skills.
