Kachinas

Among Native American traditions from the southwestern United States, Kachinas were spirit beings who inhabit all aspects of the world around us. Members of the tribe also dressed as Kachina to dance in religious ceremonies, and carved dolls were given to their children. Dave Shaddix presents three LEGO Kachina from the Hopi pantheon: from left to right - Talavai, who sings at the break of day, Angwusnasomtaka, or Crow Mother, the mother of the Kachina, and Palavitkuna, who participates in traditional footraces.
