Heard Museum Kachina Market 2012

Well, better late than never, here are some highlights from our 2012 Kachina Market. The event was held April 14 at our main location and was a great success. The weather was picture perfect here although we heard that many of our carvers braved some bad weather up north to make it down from Hopi for the event. We had some new faces, returning veterans and some carvers we hadn't seen in a while that we were delighted to welcome back!

The Market just getting started!

Wilmer's cousin, Michael Dean Jenkins, who has not been able to carve for a while because of an eye injury.
We are so glad he's fine now and carving again!
