K665 Turkey Kachina

 

Turkey Kachina by Cooledge Roy, Jr. The kachina is 6 ½” with an 14” wing span and on a 1 ½” base. It is carved from cottonwood root in the traditional Hopi manner.

 

“The Turkey Kachina appears with other birds in the kivas at night or during the Mixed Dances of late spring. He is not a common kachina and seems to be only from First Mesa.” Barton Wright, Kachinas: a Hopi Artist’s Documentary (104)

 

Hopi Kachina carver Coolidge Roy Jr. from Third Mesa comes from a family of carvers. His father, brothers and sons are all carvers. Cooledge says "Most of the time, when I am carving," he said, "I sing a song, a special song for each carving. The songs that I sing are the songs the Kachinas dance to. It's their song."
