KachinaPrints launches new web-site

March 30, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

This is an exiting day here at KachinaPrints. Our new website goes public! We've listed several hundred ethnographic Native American images that have been restored to their original colorful and brilliant condition...just like they looked when published as chromolithographs in 1890-1901. 

The original Hopi and Zuni drawings of masks and kachinas were hand-drawn and hand-colored by Native Americans. They remain today as vibrant "snapshots" of Native American culture. The colorful symbolic drawings on the images of Pueblo Pottery from the ancient, and long-gone, villages at Awatobi and Sikyatki are important today for their design contributions to modern Pueblo pottery. You can check out the History link on the site for more specific detail about the history of the all these great prints.
