It is a long story but this Kachina doll was made specifically for Sierra Kachina on the Hopi Reserve in Arizona on a visit in the early 90’s. A few years later just as mysterious i obtained the Owl Kachina shown in the background……https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kachina
We went to a show last night in Nanaimo. When we got there it was sold out so we bought a ticket for another theatre and after quickly searching one after the other for a sensible movie (there are so many popular terrible movies) we landed in ‘Ben Is Back’ with Julia Roberts. We had no idea we would be watching a movie depicting parts of Sierra’s life or at least elements of the issues in our society concerning hard-street-drug use. The titles at the end showed, ‘A Sierra Affinity Production’. It confirmed i really need to finish this documentary i began while we spend numerous times together in her last six months. I did video of her talking about her life never suspecting it would end. Life throws numerous curve balls as one winds around the bends towards the end, never knowing the exact timing of the situations about to occur. In another day a New Year will begin but really we must realize it is merely symbolic, every day is the beginning of a new year, a new life………if you want it.
