No one knows for sure exactly what the Priest Killer story is, but it is believed that he appeared around the time that the Spanish came to the Hopi people. When the Spaniards came they tried to preach their religion to the Hopi's, so the Hopi people revolted, and started burning churches that the Spaniards had built and killing any priest who would not leave. The story can be told slightly differently in almost every village.

Kachina was hand carved and painted by Hopi artist Daryl Karuh who is from Northern Arizona.

This Kachina Doll is made of cottonwood root and is signed on the bottom of the base "Daryl Karuh". 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!

    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.

    Posted by Janet O. | Reviewing NativeAmericanJewelry.com | Posted on
    I just love these earrings. The beads (denim) are the most beautiful blue. I have this in red and love them, too!
