hOPI kATSINA Artist

Katsina are the mythological spirit beings that are revered by the Hopi and other Pueblo peoples in the desert southwest . Carving into cottonwood root, Glenn Fred creates Katsina figures in the traditional method and has been doing so for over 48 years.  The cottonwood tree is sacred to many indigenous cultures, a sign of life as cottonwoods typically grow where there is a year round water source.
