Fourth grade students created kachinas as part of their study of Native Americans. They looked at several hand made kachinas and photos of authentic kachinas for ideas. The body is made of recycled tp tubes and dollar store colored sticks. Colored paper, feathers, beads, shells, leather lacing and pipe cleaners were used to create the costume and mask. The base is a “branch cookie” cut from a fallen branch.
