Offerred today on Museum Anthropology Review is a review of the book Classic Hopi and Zuni Kachina Figures by Barton Wright. The reviewers are Dorothy Washburn and Emory Sekaquaptewa and they use the opportunity of this review to intervene and correct what they identify as a number of longstanding and widespread misunderstandings surrounding the carved figures known to the world as kachinas. I am confident that everyone concerned with Native American arts from the Southwest, including, curators, scholars, collectors, and dealers will have an interest in consulting their review.
