White Buffalo Dancer Kachina by Hopi Master Carver Milton Howard
Stands approximately 8-9 inches tall. Carved from cottonwood root.
This dancer is more sacred than other buffalo because he is a white buffalo. His possible origin may have originated from a doll carved by Alvin James, of Old Oraibi village at Third Mesa. Although he appears at social dances in the winter and on all mesas, he seems to originally be a Rio Grande or Plains Indian inspired figure which has been borrowed by the Hopi.1
