Native American Hopi Carved Left Handed Hunter Katsina Doll

Description
Native American Hopi Carved Left Handed Hunter Katsina Doll by Coolidge Roy Jr.
The Left-Handed Katsina (Siyangephoya) is said by some to be derived from the Hualapai Indians. He carries his gear opposite of regular Katsinam (he must use his right hand, rather than his left, to draw an arrow from the quiver). This Katsina moves with strange bobbings and little mincing steps. Despite his odd behavior he is an excellent hunter and some consider him quite powerful. In carvings he is usually shown holding an eagle or with a deer draped over his shoulder demonstrating his hunting prowess. This powerful caring by Coolidge is carrying a rabbit stick as well as a bow and a quiver filled with arrows.
