The other A’hote version has a “split” mask with different colors on each side. Both seem to be derived from Plains Indians because he wears a long trailing eagle feather headdress. Sakwahote is the Blue Guard Katsina. Sikyahote is yellow. This particular YellowAhote was carved in the 1970s by an unknown Hopi carver. He has a fur ruff and feathers on his back and in his tab ears.

    0 out of 5

    Native Alaskan Made Qaviq (Wolverine) Woman Doll by Glenda McKay In the village of Anuik there was a great woman by the name of Qaviq. She had so much knowledge of the old traditions and of the old ways of skin sewing that have been lost. She could not have children of her own to pass this knowledge on to, so she would teach any of the village children that wanted to learn. One day a family with many children were blessed with a new son. They shared this blessing by giving the child to Qaviq woman, knowing that she would love him and raise him as if he were her own. Qaviq woman would teach him the old ways and he would be a great hunter and provider for his family. Glenda is unable to bear children herself, friends told her that this project to honor Qaviq woman took her nine months to complete. This is a fabulous collector item. The little cradle can be unbuttoned from Qaviq woman and the child removed from the cradleboard. Glenda harvested every piece of animal fur and baleen and made the sinew for this piece. We have all of the details on what went into the making of this fabulous piece. It will be provided, in the artist’s handwriting, to the purchaser. Glenda McKay and several other dollmakers are featured in Native Peoples magazine (December 2008 Issue) in the article “Living Dollmakers” by Gussie Fauntleroy. Qaviq Woman is shown in this article.

    Native American Hopi Carved Aholi Priest Katsina Doll

    Native American Hopi Carved Aholi Priest Katsina Doll

    0 out of 5

    Native American Hopi Carved Aholi Priest Katsina Doll by Cecil Calnimptewa Aholi is a Native American Hopi high priest who appears only on Third Mesa and in the company of Eototo during the Powamuya Ceremony. This katsina is the ancient of the Pikyas Clan. Legend has it that Aholi, left behind to fight a rear guard action, followed Eototo through migrations that took them from Mexico to Utah and from the Colorado River to the City Rio Grande and back to their present location on Third Mesa. The two Katsinam come out of the Chief Kiva during Powamuya and perform the rites described under Eototo. Aholi is a beautiful Katsina in his cloak and tall blue helmet, but he is of less importance than the very plain Eototo and is often called Eototo’s Lieutenant. When Eototo places his cloud mark on the ground, Aholi puts the butt of his staff upon it and swinging the staff around calls out, “A–holi-i-i-i” and then follows his chief to the next mark. His actions appear to be a reinforcing of Eototo’s actions.
