Additional Info

Shalako is an important figure in Zuni culture. Occasionally, they appear in carvings by the top Zuni fetish carvers. Here is an example in black marble by Zuni Russell Shack (compare it tot he multi-colored Shalako created by Terrence Martza) The Shalako celebration brings the full size figures, extremely tall and intimidating, to the Zuni Pueblo in December each year.
