This is a truly captivating Kachina that is packed with detail.

Tasap yeibichai is the grandfather of the Navajo Kachina, and is one of the more enjoyable features of the Navajo Kachina Dance. He does not speak; instead he acts out “in a comical way” whatever he wants. He starts the dance, acting as a leader in both the singing and the dancing. His dance step is a sort of Lively exaggeration, with the occasional pause for comic relief, such as a request for food. All of his acts are done in pantomimes that make the audience laugh.

Woody Sewemaenewa showed the talent required to be a great Kachina carver at a very early age. Since he was to young to be initiated as a carver, he would sneak into his father's shed and carve in secret. One day when his kachinas were discovered, everyone in his family knew that Woody had the gift to become a carver. Then, he was guided and initiated properly by his father. Now, Woody's work is known and recognized due to his hard work and artistic ability. Woody loves to constantly carve kachinas and his passion is seen in the different styles of kachinas that he makes. He was born on November 27, 1969 in Keams Canyon, Arizona. Woody belongs to the Greasewood Clan.

This Kachina Doll is made of cottonwood root and is signed on the bottom of the base "Woody Sewemaenewa ". If you would like to see a picture of the signature on the bottom of the base or more pictures of the doll please let us know. We are PROUD to bring you another amazing Kachina Doll!

    Gorgeous bracelet?
    Posted by Rebeca B. | Reviewing NativeAmericanJewelry.com | Posted on
    I received my DNA results and was surprised to have Native American. I immediately felt that I needed an authentic Native American piece of jewelry. I found this web site and went for it! The pieces looked stunning on the site. I received my bracelet and ring. The bracelet is absolutely more stunning in person and made with love. The turquoise stone and metal design are absolutely elegant. The ring stones are a nice size and crafted to perfection. I will order again from this site and enjoy wearing my native American jewelry proudly? I have already placed another order for a second ring and plan on ordering a belt buckle. The quality of every piece is unique and worth it. Thank you Rebeca
