Old Style Hopi Carved Buffalo Maiden Traditional Dancer Katsina Doll by Orlan Honyumptewa
It is said that the Buffalo Maiden is a dancer, not a Katsina. She has white on her headdress to indicate the first snow of winter. She wears a Hopi wedding sash and carries a shield on her back. This simple tihu carving will remind you of the power of the buffalo and the coming of winter and the snow pack that will melt in spring to bring the earth back to life.
