About this title


Examines the role of kachinas (rain deities) in the cultures of the Rio Grande, Zuni, and Hopi pueblos. Considers the origins of the kachina cult, traces the figure of the kachina to a Mesoamerican original, and looks at the fortunes of the rain deities after the Spanish and Anglo conquests of the Pueblo homeland. Discusses the transition from religious to art object, and considers the role of the kachina in allowing Puebloan beliefs to endure. Includes color photos and b&w illustrations. Schaafsma is a research associate of the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture/Laboratory of Anthropology, Museum of New Mexico. Material originated at an October 1991 seminar. Annotation c.
