About Cecil MilesNavajo carver Cecil Miles started carving in 1990 and interstingly, learned the art of kachina carving from the Hopi carver Alvin Navasie. He often carves with Alvin and Cecil Calnimptewa, both of who are Hopi. At first, Cecil created much more simple carvings and began adding more details to his work as his skills increased. He now carves one piece Kachinas with great detail, often working with collectors to create very fine works of art. His favorite Kachinas to carve are animals such as Eagles and Buffalo warriors because they are “leaning more toward life.”
He has won awards at Ceremonial and a blue ribbon at O’odham Tash. His work has been published in American Indian Art and Art of the Hopi.
