Paula says -

"I've never seen such a huge beautiful kachina pendant. The detail is masterfully and tastefully done. The 3-dimensional effect of the case mask and ruff gives this pendant real depth and interest. The authenticity and completeness of the Morning Kachina characteristics is amazing. The feather cap portion of his headdress is gold."

Morning Kachina

Native American Hopi kachina dollsThe Morning Kachina, is also known as the Morning Singer, Early Morning Kachina, the Silent Kachina and Talavai. The Silent Kachina is an odd nickname for the Morning Kachina since it sings! Pairs of Morning Kachinas sing to wake people in the villages each morning.

Typically, Morning Kachina:

  • carries a spruce bough in his left hand and a silver bell in his right
  • has a bow guard (Kato) on the left wrist
  • wears a case mask (blue if painted) with rectangular black eyes
  • has a Douglas Fir ruff around his neck
  • wears a large headdress fan of black tipped feathers
  • has cloud symbols on his cheeks, red tab ears with small shell earrings and a red tubular mouth.
  • wears a ceremonial maiden's blanket over his shoulders like a robe, a white embroidered kilt, embroidered sash and red embroidered belt
  • has a long fox skin that hangs down his back
  • wears ceremonial ankle cuffs and red moccasins.

Who is Tommy Singer?

Known world wide for his silver work, chip inlay and necklaces, Tommy Singer pieces are highly collectible and sought after. The Tommy Singer family has been involved in silversmithing, stone and beadwork for a very long time, handing the art down from one generation to another. Tommy Singer grew up on in the community of Dilcon on the Navajo Reservation in Arizona and has been attributed as the first Native American artist to use chip inlay. This is where a silver piece is decorated with turquoise or coral chips. (See this bracelet for an example of chip inlay.)
