Hopi Hemis Mana Kachina
◄ Overview

Walter Howato

Hopi Hemis Mana Kachina

In the 1960’s, as many Hopi carvers were moving towards realism, Walter Howato went the other direction, reviving interest in “Old Style” katsina (or kachina) dolls. He used a local white clay called tumma as the base medium for his paints, which imparted an antique aura to his work: “I close my eyes and think of how the dolls used to look when I was a child.” Intriguingly, in earlier years, Howato had spent time working for the Walt Disney Corporation as a painter and interior decorator.
