Shalako Kachina Dolls are the most impressive pieces of Native American Indian art. Navajo Indian Kachina Dolls and Hopi Indian Kachina Dolls are highly collectible. The Shalako Kachina Ceremony Celebrates the end of the old and the beginning of the New Year; it also blesses the houses.
The Shalako dance is performed on a mesa, giving thanks for a plentiful year and an abundant harvest. The artist used the root's natural bends and curves, capturing the dancer holding its robes tightly around itself because it moves within the wind on top of the mesa.
