    Hopi Masks – Kachina Personalities

    Hopi Masks and Kachinas…On the Kachina page, I go into detail on the basis, traditions and the “now” of Kachinas, but did not dig very deeply into the Hopi masks worn by the men as they portray the Kachina spirits.
    The Hopi masks of the Kachina dancers are a very important part of the Kachina dances held by the Pueblo tribes. The masks are vastly more potent than Kachina dolls…the masks are living spirits.
