A relatively hard to find Coolidge Roy Sr. doll.
The Badger (Honan) has great knowledge of roots and herbs and is sought for his wisdom and his ability to cure the sick by using herbal potions.
The Badger Katsina appears in the summer dances. He is not only a healer and a chief; he also dances for rain for the crops. He appears at all three Mesas.
Due to the fragile nature of kachina dolls, we do not guarantee they will not break during shipping. We do our best to pack them well, but due to their fragile nature and even with the best packing, small pieces can break. If you are purchasing kachina dolls, please keep this in mind.
