Lieutenant Aholi by Hopi Master Carver Milton Howard

Appears only on Third Mesa in the company of Eototo.  Eototo is the "father" of the kachinas, and thus is considered the chief of all kachinas and knows every ceremony.

"Aholi is the ancient of the Pikyas Clan.  Legend has it that Aholi, left behind to fight a rear guard action, later followed Eototo through several migrations."

"Often called Eototo's Lieutenant...When Eototo places his cloud mark on the ground, Aholi puts the butt of his staff upon it and swinging the staff calls out, 'Ah-holi-i-i-i', and then follows his chief to the next mark.  His actions appear to be a reinforcing of Eototo's actions."1

Available in six sizes.
