Wonderfully made Tocha or Hummingbird Kachina!

The Tocha Kachina is a frequently made kachina.  It appears during Kiva Dances in the winter, and during the Soyohim Dances in the spring.  When it enters a kiva, it usually dances by bobbing its head and making calls like the humming bird.  Then, it moves rapidly around the kiva like a hummingbird would.  During a dance, when it catches an individual, it whips him or her with yucca leaves.  This kachina often appears as a runner because it is fast.

Joseph Duwyenie is an experienced carver. Carving is a family tradition that was taught to him by his father, and like his father, he has passed it on to his sons. Joeseph started to carve in 1970. He has a distinctive style in the way that he carves the feathers and wings of his Kachinas. He also likes to change the style of colors on each Kachina that he makes. Joe enjoys the time he takes to carve and paint each Kachina doll..

This Kachina Doll is made of cottonwood root and is signed on the bottom of the base "Joe Duwyenie". 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! Dolls like this one are the reason we are the #1 NATIVE AMERICAN ART SELLER!

We GUARANTEE AUTHENTICITY on all of our Kachinas.

    Just got my Pottery and silver jewelry. If it lasts as good as it looks, Great. It appears to be well made and the pot is gorgeous. My wife is very happy with her 50th Wedding Anniversary gifts.
