The information in this manuscript is based on a lecture presented at a seminar on Kachina dolls, given by Alan Kessler on August 18, 1988 in Santa Fe, New Mexico. As stated in the Foreword, “It does not cover everything that is known about Kachina dolls. I have been a student of the subject for over 20 years and still, new information is constantly revealing itself. It is my hope that through the seminar and from the information that is provided in this paper, you will be encouraged to join me on this long journey of discovery. “Signed, Alan Kessler, August 1, 1988
