This event is the nation's largest gathering of Hopi katsina doll carvers and is an amazing opportunity to meet some of the most prominent carvers working today. Long time collectors and those who are just getting started can purchase traditional and contemporary style dolls directly from the artists. Come meet the carvers as well as enjoy musical performances, carving demonstrations and more!
This year's featured carver is Michael Dean Jenkins (Hopi/ Pima) who donated his carving to be auctioned off as part of the event. One lucky ticket will win this Whipper katsina doll, plus a poster of the event autographed by all the attending carvers! This doll is valued at $2,800!
