Kachinas are, as messengers, invited to the Hopi Mesas with
proper rituals. They bring physical, aesthetic, and spiritual
blessings necessary for survival in Hopi life. Our trading post's
long-established service in the shadow of ancient Walpi and Oraibi
and other Hopi villages has enabled us to work cooperatively
with local kachina carvers. Together, we have developed creativity
to a very high level, while maintaining authentic kachina forms.
McGee's kachina collection, in keeping with the highest ceremonial
standards, provides kachinas in a price range extending from
the first-time buyer to the serious collector, museums and galleries.
