      Katchina dolls started with Hopi Indians . They added bases in around 1960's prior they would hang on wall. Katchina' vary greatly in price by well known makers and skill . Yours looks like "Navajo" made and "The Badger" is known for his wisdom and his ability to cure the sick through prayer. He has great knowledge of roots and herbs and is responsible for their growth.
      Though the Hopi Katsina dolls hold tremendous spiritual and cultural significance, the Navajo dolls do not. The Navajo do not hold any major religious or cultural beliefs around the Kachina dolls; however, they bring to their craft a unique eye and an artistic style that is not present in other Native American Kachinas. Though the Navajo Kachina dolls borrow much of their posture and basic symbolism from the Hopi, the Navajo are free to design and decorate their dolls with a rich flourish that would ultimately spoil the spiritual significance of their pieces for Puebloans.
      These are still being made for tourists today .
