Old Style Hopi Carved Disheveled Traditional Guard Katsina Doll
Old Style Hopi Carved Disheveled Traditional Guard Katsina Doll by Gene Lalo
The Disheveled Katsina (Motsin) appears infrequently as his original function was to enforce attendance for community work parties to clean the springs. Most water is supplied through systems now and he no longer has that function. He can still appear as a guard and has either a white face with red and black lines or a black face with white lines.
