Hopi Kachinas bring you one of a kind representation of centuries old tradition. These works of art will captivate you and bring charm to your home for decades to come.

Hopi Clowns

Hopi clowns are an important part of Pueblo Indian ceremonies and culture. The act known as “clowning” is meant to reinforce the values of the Hopi people by mocking and satirizing other cultures, taboos, and behaviors that are in conflict with Hopi values. Clowning often takes the form of performing skits or dance, often obscene, meant to entice laughter yet remind people of the importance of basic Hopi values, such as respect, sexual modesty, non-inquisitiveness, non-aggression, self-control, etc. The Hopi people believe in the power of creativity and creation; they expect their villagers to respect the powers that control social norms and standards of the community.

Hopi clown dolls represent special traditions of the Hopi people; traditions that encourage one to live a respectful and modest life. Our collection of Hopi clowns are all hand crafted, using an age old technique that tells a story. Shop today and add Hopi culture to your décor.
