By Frederick J. Dockstader

First released in 1954, this attention-grabbing learn of the scope and
complexity of the Kachina cult has for too lengthy been out of print. In
this revised version, the writer updates his particularly gloomy predictions
of thirty years in the past that the Kachina rituals have been at risk of loss of life out
because smooth pressures looked to be proscribing their worship.
Despite the continuous pressures of contemporary and Anglo methods of life,
however, Dockstader can fortunately file that the Kachina has made a
dramatic go back and that Hopi faith is still a powerful and
meaningful starting place of the tradition. in reality, Dockstader observes,
the appreciation of the traditional Hopi rituals and conventional customs
"provides a lot of the glue retaining jointly the entire Hopi world--
and of this, the Kachina continues to be an immense element."
Although anthropologists have lengthy attempted to systematize and interpret the Hopi Kachina cult, it's Dockstader who has introduced the
material modern, healthy it into its ancient viewpoint, and described
and defined the manifold symbols and designs from the viewpoint
of the Hopi artist. the writer examines the consequences of the current
surge of vacationer curiosity in Indian traditions, specifically dances, and
the ever-growing paintings marketplace curiosity in Kachina dolls. The influence
of commercialization is apparent, and a few of the consequences are inevitably
deleterious. -
"The publication features a wealth of data on common Hopi historical past and Hopi life."--Harold Colton

At the initiation of this project I was associated with Cranbrook Institute of Science, and the encouragement and guidance given by its Director, Dr. Robert T.

Stephen, Jesse Walter Fewkes, and Elsie Clews Parsons, recognition from me would be presumptuous. We who follow them add to their stature in the same measure that we take from their work.
