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!

    My third purchase
    Posted by Jerome G. | Reviewing NativeAmericanJewelry.com | Posted on
    I bought a nice pendant this time along with a sterling bear claws money clip. This is great value for hand made jewelry. As I mentioned previously, I guarantee anyone can find something beautiful and affordable. There also was a discount so keep an eye out for those. Shipping is always free and fast.

    Beautiful ring.
    Posted by Richard N. | Reviewing NativeAmericanJewelry.com | Posted on
    The picture didn't do the opals justice. The ring was more beautiful in person and fit perfectly.
