American Indian Art Series: Volume Seven Hopi Katsina 1,600 Artist Biographies by Gregory Schaaf Assisted by Angie Yan Schaaf The Center for Indigenous Arts & Cultures is proud to present the seventh volume in our series. Each book is organized alphabetically, so readers can look up a particular artist in seconds. The purpose of the series is to introduce the public to American Indian artists and to honor them for their “fine arts.” This volume profiles over 1,600 Hopi Katsina carvers from 1840 to the present. Although Katsina dolls began to be signed in the 1930s, earlier carvers were identified from family tree charts, historic documents and oral history interviews with direct descendants. This book was designed to make the vast body of research readily available.About the Author:
