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".
