Hopi Carved Warrior Mouse Hero Katsina Rattle by Silas Roy
Though not a Katsina, the Warrior Mouse is a hero to the Hopi of Second Mesa for having rid the people of a troublesome chicken hawk they had been unable to eliminate from the Mesa. The Mouse Warrior tricked the chicken hawk into impaling itself on a stake, saving the crops and thus became a hero to the people. This is a really sweet gourd rattle created by Silas Roy of the Hopi nation.
