The Squeaking Tribe

Kachina – Handcrafted Pueblo Spirit Being Marionette


Kachinas are the spirit beings celebrated through dance, costume and mask by the Pueblo people of Central America. To many modern day theorists, they potentially suggest a link between the ancient culture and an extraterrestrial influence, the dolls created as an extension of their rituals seen as manifestations of an early alien race which the Pueblo people were witness to. For us here @squeakingtribemarionettes of course, they represent a new wellspring of inspiration and a new range of marionettes. Appearing for the first time at our Etsy shop, they are a unique and colourful deviation from our standard designs and one sure to excite those shopping for something both traditional and contemporary with a decidedly tribal bent!


Cultural Creations: History and Mythology collide in the Crucible of World Culture!

From the Dawn of Time, humankind has strived to understand its place in the Universe through story, philosophy, language, technology and the Arts. Through the eras, every civilisation, big or small, has developed tools to understand the world around them and from their recorded Lore have we found a seemingly endless wellspring of inspiration with which to hone our skills in textiles and costuming. The multi-faceted pageantry of our ancestral roots is celebrated here!

Marionette in doll form is approximately 25cm in height or 60cm when strung.
