The 10th Annual Katsina Market Highlights

Saturday April 2 the Heard Museum hosted over 125 Hopi Katsina carvers for our annual Katsina Market.  It was a wonderful event- amazing artwork, book signings and performances by Ryon Polequoptewa's band Thunderboy, including a Clown Eagle dance.  Here are some photo highlights.
