|Kachinas are not actually dolls the way the word is usually used; they are wooden sculptures, religious in nature, which are not used as or appropriate for children's toys. Kachina dolls are meticulously hand-carved and painted by a small number of Hopi artists who have won the cultural honor of making them, and they are priced accordingly. Visit our Hopi kachina page to see examples of this beautiful art form.|

About us: This website belongs to Native Languages of the Americas, a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving and promoting endangered Native American languages. We are not artists ourselves, so if you are interested in buying some of the Indian dolls featured on this page, please contact the artists directly. Though we have featured only Native American dolls identified with the name and tribal affiliation of each artist, we haven't called the tribal offices to check up on any of them, and we only know a few of them personally. We also don't guarantee any of their products. This is not an exhaustive list of American Indian dolls--if you would like us to add your native doll site to this page, please contact us with your URL and tribal affiliation. We advertise any individual native artist or native-owned art business here free of charge. We do not link to dolls which are not made by tribally recognized American Indian, Inuit, or First Nations artists, so please do not ask us to. And finally, websites do occasionally expire and change hands, so use your common sense and this general rule of thumb: if the creator of each individual artwork is not identified by name and specific tribe, you are probably not looking at a genuine American Indian doll.
