HOPI SHALAKO KACHINA BY FERRELL ZEENA NATIVE AMERICAN

čReturn to Previous Page
Description

Description

The Shalako run back and forth all year long carrying messages, and when they leave, they carry prayers for rain with them.  The Shalako Ceremony is performed in late November or early December and takes place after the crops are in.  This ceremony is the most important event of the year.  Because the Shalako are messengers to the gods, their departure at the ceremony is the final prayer for rain to fill the rivers, wells and springs before summer comes.  Hopi artist Ferrell Zeena carved this magnificent Shalako kachina out of cottonwood.  An exquisite addition to your Native American art or Hopi Kachina collection.  Signed

13¬† 1/4‚Ä≥ tall x 8¬† 1/4‚ÄĚ long x 3¬† 1/4‚ÄĚ wide

Hopi people live primarily on three mesas in Northeastern Arizona.  In Hopi cosmology, the majority of katsinas reside on the Humphreys Peak, which is west of Hopiland.  Each year, throughout the period from winter solstice to mid-July, these spirits, in the form of katsinas, come down to the villages to dance and sing, to bring rain for the upcoming harvest, and to give gifts to the children.  The katsinas are known to be the spirits of deities, natural elements or animals, or the deceased ancestors of the Hopi.  Prior to each katsina ceremony, the men of the village will spend days studiously making figures in the likeness of the katsinam represented in that particular ceremony. The figures are then passed on to the daughters of the village by the Giver Kachina during the ceremony.  Following the ceremony, the figures are hung on the walls of the pueblo and are meant to be studied in order to learn the characteristics of that certain Kachina.
