Grey Wolf Trading Post presents a collection of beautiful Navajo Kachina Dolls. Each of these Navajo Kachinas individually handcrafted and handpainted. No two are alike in feathers or clothing. We will try our best to fill your order with your preferred color, but all characters are not available in all colors at all times. Available in three sizes: 6″, 10″ and 12″.
The Navajo Kachina has no religious significance in the Navajo culture, it is a way for the Navajo to earn a living.The Navajo Kachina makers have borrowed from many other cultures over the years. It is clear upon examination of these dolls that the Navajo Kachina is NOT handcarved from cottonwood root as are the Hopi Katsinas. The body parts of the Navajo Kachina are machine made, the dolls are then pegged and glued together and hand-finished by the Navajo.

The Native American Indian Artists use only genuine feathers, furs, bones, beads, leather, wood, stone, etc. in the making of each work of art. There is nothing artificial used unless it is required by law. No parts of animals such as bones, feathers, etc. are from any animals considered endangered. The feathers used are from Wild Turkeys.
The colors of feathers, fur, leather, beads and patterns can vary. All of our items are individually made by hand and are uniquely one of a kind. Therefore what you see on these pages is merely a representation of the product you will receive.
