The Broad-Faced or Wuyak-kuita Kachina is a guard Kachina. In every ceremony, he helps the other guards prevent any transgression on the path of the Kachinas. He is not a guard in the Powamu Ceremony on First Mesa. He accompanies the Soyoko and helps her in all her activities. The Broad Face carries yucca whips and moves in an intimidating manner. He is the one who moves toward the clowns and terrifies them. On Third Mesa, He is the Kachina who guards the kivas to keep He Wuhti from getting too close during the Palolokong Ceremony.

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.

    Pendant for husband
    Posted by Marilyn P. | Reviewing NativeAmericanJewelry.com | Posted on
    I purchase this cuz I've been looking everywhere and couldn't find a really nice pendant for my husband of over 40 years and I saw this one that Laura Lincoln did and fell in love with it, it was supposed to be for May 20th but I couldn't stand it so I gave it to him yesterday and he just is in love with it. The experience was really easy and it's an extremely gorgeous high-quality piece I'm just so grateful I found your website I hope a lot of other people find it like I did. They won't be disappointed.

    I just love these earrings. The beads (denim) are the most beautiful blue. I have this in red and love them, too!
