"The Talavai (Morning Singer) Kachina formerly appeared in pairs on the rooftops and sang songs, waking the people in the village. During the day they would dance with the other kachinas that they led and prompted in the singing. This role is no longer used in any of the villages. They still appear with the other Kachinas in the Powamu Ceremony and are most often standing in a set to one side of the main movement of the procession."
The buckle measures 3-1/4" long and 2-1/4" wide. The buckle can accommodate a 1-3/4" widebelt and weighs 65g. The back of the buckle is stamped with the maker's hallmark HY and a Sun Face.
The buckle has been tested and examined for purity and is sterling silver.
