Kevin Pochoema is amongst the best Kachina carvers to date. His style of carving has become very popular, and is in great demand. Kevin’s style is unlike any other carvers, and for that reason, it will continue to grow in recognition. His work can be seen in many books, magazines, and museums. Kevin Pochoema is featured on the cover of “Art of the Hopi” by Lois & Jerry Jacka . He is also thoroughly featured in Kent McManis’s book “Hopi Katsina Dolls”. He has won major awards at the Gallup Inter-Tribal Indian Ceremonial and the O'Odham Tash Festival. Kevin started carving when he was about 14 years of age. He learned how to carve from his older brother Greg. When he is carving, Kevin loves seeing the Kachina take shape “come out” in the wood. Kevin was born on February 2, 1965 in Flagstaff, Arizona. He is member of the Greasewood Clan of the Hopi Tribe.
