Known as the supernatural spirits of the Hopi, the kachinas embody the spirits of living things and ancestors that have passed and are part of nature. It is essential to the Hopi to preserve harmony with the world they live in new and old. As the kachinasí possess these powers over nature they are also seen as guardians of the Hopi people. They can insure human, plant and animal fertility, everything living. Carved from cottonwood root, each kachina doll resembles a supernatural spirit that is given to a child educating them about the ways of life.

The Yo-we or Priest Killer is known for killing the priest at Oraibi during the revolt. In the late 1600ís the Hopis rebelled against the Spanish priests at the same time as the Pueblos along the Rio Grande. He never appears in ordinary dances.

This kachina was made by Elmer Adams. It measures, approximately: 10-1/4 in. x 3-1/2 in.
