Native American Hopi Carved Cricket Racer Katsina Doll: Cricket (Soso’pa) is a Racer Katsina. This Katsina whips his opponents gently with a yucca whip when he is victorious. This is a very sweet full figure by Kevin Honyouti who is just starting to carve this style.
Kowarpa (Pronounced koh-warsh-pa) represents the spirit of the quail. This katsina was known to appear in katsina dances as late as the 1930s and then ‘disappeared’ until it was re-introduced about twenty-some years ago. By Randy Brokeshoulder
