Depicted – Kwaho, the Eagle, who Dances on a Cliff: a Kachina Doll that stood a Foot High… “The hopi carve figurines of their gods and spirits from the cotton-wood tree roots. Dancers at rituals distribute these to little girls. Studying them, children learn to identify Kachinas. The doll spreads wooden wings; a dancer would use eagle feathers.”
