Old Style Hopi Carved Imitator Traditional Clown Katsina Doll


Old Style Hopi Carved Navajo Imitator Traditional Clown Katsina Doll by Sandra Suhu

Imitators (Tasavu) are caricatures of Navajos. They are one of the Piptuka, a group of men who band together to perform a skit to entertain the audience between dances. They are basically a sub-group of the Clowns, have no sacred role, and are solely for entertainment. Their regalia is varied and the actions are almost vaudevillian.
