Mural Depiction

Seen here are two Kachina Hunters searching for their prey. Following the bear tracks we can see the bear they are tracking on the next wall.

Background Information

A Kachina is a spirit being in Pueblo religious beliefs of the Hopi Native American cultures of southwestern United States.

 

The Kachina concept has different aspects:

  • A supernatural being.

  • Kachina dancers, masked members of the community who represent Kachinas at religious ceremonies.

  • Small Kachina dolls carved in the likeness of Kachinas and given as gifts to children.
