Native American Made Whiteface Maiden Dancer Katsina Doll
Native American Made Whiteface Maiden Dancer Katsina Doll by Sammie Walker (Navajo-Hopi)
We believe that the Whiteface Maiden is a dancer that represents the white women and the way they look and act. The Navajo, as well as the Hopi will create a dancer that either pays homage to or makes fun of that individual or group. This is a wonderful piece that is created in a style that is unusual today. Very few of the artists make the Native American dolls this way. The action is wonderful and the carving, painting and details are very accurate.
