The Buffalo Dancer or Kocha Mosairu is not a Kachina, but rather a social dancer. It is usually seen in ceremonies in January on First Mesa. It is a doll that most carvers do not mind doing as part of their repertoire. His popularity began from the works of Alvin James Makya who made one of the first dolls. It is now a favorite among collectors. All animals are an important part of the Hopi culture, they are believed to provide guidance, health, and protection.

Award winning artist Keith Torres and his work, can be seen in the book, "Katchina Dolls and Their Carvers" by Theda Bassman. He is one of the most creative Hopi Carvers around. With his own style of carving, Keith has shown an incredible art talent, his carving and detailing combination have produced among the best Kachina dolls to date. He puts a lot of time and effort into his Kachina Dolls, trying to make them as perfect as he sees them in his own mind. Starting in 1985, Keith was taught how to carve by Edward Poleahla. One of the things he enjoys most in the creation of a Kachina doll is the painting. Keith was born on December 14th, 1963 in Window Rock, Arizona. He is a part of the Coyote and Fire Clans of the Hopi Tribe.

This Kachina Doll is made of cottonwood root and is signed on the side of the base "Keith Torres".

    Website picture doesn't do it justice

    The malachite stone is wonderful! The colour is much richer and more dramatic than what was depicted in the photo of the item on the site. The setting is lovely! Very happy with. :)

    Purchased earrings resembling feathers in sterling silver as gifts for my daughter and a 30" liquid silver necklace for myself. The most beautiful jewelry I am so proud to own. I will continue to buy from Native you can't do better.

    Beautiful Pendants
    Posted by Gary T. | Reviewing NativeAmericanJewelry.com | Posted on
    I recently purchased a beautiful Zuni ring during a trip to New Mexico. Wanted to get some Zuni jewelry for Christmas gifts but was a bit leary of purchasing on line. Decided to purchase three pendants from Native American. They arrived in two days and were absolutely stunning. Excellent quality and at a great “sale” price.
