18 1/4 inches
Hand carved and painted, cottonwood root.
Occasionally, in one of the night ceremonies in March or during the Powamu, one may have the satisfaction of seeing a performance of the Eagle Kachina. Usually the performer imitates the step or motion and cry of the eagle to absolute perfection.
Eagle Kachinas will sometimes appear with Mudheads at night ceremonies in March.
