Kachina

In Hopi religious practice, Kachina refers to three related things.
  • the spirits that live in the San Francisco Peaks[?] near Flagstaff, Arizona. There are about 300 of them, each representing something different.
  • the men of the tribe dressed and masked to represent the Kachinas in a traditional ceremony.Even though there are male and female Kachinas, only men can represent them.
  • a masked doll which represents a kachina spirit. They are presented to the women and children of the tribe.
