Table of Contents
In December, 1935, Edwin Earle arrived in Oraibi. He lived for a year on the Hopi mesas and witnessed a full cycle of kachina dances. The images in this volume were chosen from among the kachinas he painted. Dr. Edward Kennard prepared a text that explains the meaning of kachina ceremonialism, and this book was first published in 1938. Although several books on Hopi Kachina dolls are readily available; it is more difficult to find literature on the ceremonies themselves. Kennard's text and Earle's paintings bring the kachinas to life for the contemporary student of Hopi religion.
