Katsina: Commodified and Appropriated Images of Hopi Supernaturals

This volume chronicles the commodification of the Hopi Katsina over the last fifteen years. Once known only to the pueblo peoples of the southwest, these carvings have been transformed into international symbols and are found decorating t-shirts, scarves, coasters, and a host of other products. In Katsina the authors confront the consequences of inter- and intracultural perception, definitions of sacred and secular, colonialism and post-colonial retort.

Also included are short statements by thirteen contemporary artists actively carving Katsinam or representing them in their work.
