Hey!! What's the story?
Hanson designs authentic kachina masks. Relentlessly, Zuni spirits drive him into frantic laps around the clock. They whisper his name, these Kachinas who live in the Lake of the Dead. “Pare the wood with the sharp knife,” they command. “With the gouge, carve hollows, rounds and sweeping curves."
He cannot dispel these demons who saved him from the rushing waters of the Little Colorado River.
Sometimes Hanson sets down his painted mask and walks the dark streets of Arizona’s Joseph City. He deludes himself thinking for these moments he is free.
When the Kachinas whisper, he kills again.
