It's virtually impossible to begin writing about The Kachina Doll without first exploring the rich history behind these treasures.

The first people to arrive on the American continent did so by crossing the Bering Strait between 15,000 and 40,000 years ago, arriving in Alaska from Asia.

Theories on their travel range from sailing in kayaks, walking across an ice cap to the possibility of a land bridge connecting Asia to North America. Whatever their mode of travel, over thousands of years, these Paleo- Indians migrated across the face of the North American continent.

The ancestral heritage of the tribes which now occupy the Southwestern United States, is derived from three distinct prehistoric cultures. The Anasazi (a Navajo word meaning ancient people who are not us), The Hohokam and The Mogollon.

It is believed that sometime between 900 and 1100 AD, the Anasazi cultural dominance absorbed much of the Mogollon culture reaching a total meshing around 1450. It is also believed that this merging contributes to the cultural background of the Hopi, Zuni and Acoma.

When referring to the Navajo or Dine (Navajo for the People) in contemporary terms, we are speaking of those Native Americans who now occupy the American Southwest.
