Mongwhu Kachina by oxboxer Mongwhu Kachina by oxboxer
MORE KACHINAS I AM ON FIYAH.

Based on clowns and owls! The clowns run around and behave badly and if someone from the community is being bad, they’ll imitate the person so blatantly that everyone will know who they’re aping and they will feel BURNING SHAME. It’s a little passive aggressive. The owl guy (based on a kachina named Mongwhu) is just aggressive, if you’re doing something bad he comes outta nowhere and whacks you with a stick (stick not pictured). I admire his no-nonsense approach.

These are adorable, as ever, and have been inspiring research of my own!
Have you seen Jimmy Kewanwytewa's kachina dolls? The dolls come with little descriptions of their kachina that you might find interesting. [link]

Kachinas are rad! I got a book full of amazing Kachina doll pictures (and their related backstories) and found it utterly compelling. Yours are great!

Just a heads up, I'm like, probably going to favourite every one of these drawings you do.
These are pretty much the best thing in my life right now.

Kachinas!! Love it :) Hey if you like Native American design and culture, you should look up Apache crowndancers. They dance around and perceive someone in the crowd who's a liar/dishonest/done bad deeds and go and beat the 'evil' out of them with sticks. Freaky/beautiful stuff. I spent quite a bit of time on the reservations and the Native cultures are amazing.

I demand more kachinas. You give them so much character that's already augmented by the pre-existing character they all have.
