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.
