    Star Nation Teachings -Native Spirit in art



    here are a few Kachinas and their purposes.

    Koshare or Hano Clown




    Because they do not wear masks, the Koshare or Hano Clown are technically not katsinas. However, they play an important role among and integrate with the serious katsina. Like most katsinas they teach lessons and give social commentary with their actions.

    The Koshare figures are both sacred and profane. When there are pauses in the kachina dances, they amuse the audience with their inappropriate actions, loud conversations and gluttony. Koshare are also called Gluttons, which is why Koshare dolls are often shown gorging themselves on watermelon. They overdo everything to show you how stupid inappropriate behavior can be.

    Re: Star Nation Teachings - Kachinas



    Patung aka Squash Kasina



    The Squash or Patung kachina is a favorite among many collectors and appears primarily on First Mesa as a runner. It is thought that he may have derived from Zuni. He is sometimes depicted with flowers in both hands, but generally appears with a set of yucca whips in one hand.

    As a "runner," the Patung belongs to a class of kachinas who are not dancers but rather run races with the men and boys of the village. "They come in the late spring, either as a group or as individuals, during a pause in a Mixed Dance or Plaza Dance.

    Usually they will select one end of the Plaza and, assembling there, will endeavor to have an individual race them. If there are many runners, or Wawarus, there will be a great churning about with one or another racing down the length of the Plaza and other prancing up and down to ready themselves for the coming contest.

    Quite often they will lure some unwary clown into racing and will immediately catch the hapless individual and perpetrate their peculiar form of punishment on him. They quickly tire of this and will gesture or hold up a reward to some young man in the crowd of bystanders.

    If he accepts, they will allow him about ten feet of space in which he can move about as he pleases. But the minute he leaves the area he runs as if instant disaster were behind him, and it usually is, for some of the punishments are quite unpleasant.

    Win or lose, he will receive payment with some kind of food from these racers. No one is safe from the oldest man to the youngest boy; all, including white members of the audience can receive the attention of these kachinas. The kachinas are expected to pay for whipping the young men, and this they do by sending water when it is needed for germinating the crops."

    Re: Star Nation Teachings - Kachinas

    What is a Kachina?

    To survive in a waterless land, the Hopi developed a complex religion to secure supernatural assistance in fulfilling their needs. Kachinas are the spirit essence of everything in the real world. Their essence is inferred from the steam which rises from food and whose loss does not change the form of the food, to the mist rising from a spring on a cold morning or the cloud which forms above the mountaintop.

    Kachinas are not deities, but supernatural beings who dwell in an invisible world until the are given form in the parallel human world. At appointed times during the winter, spring and summer, Hopi Men from age 10 don elaborate costumes and masks to impersonate their kachina counterparts. In the process, the kachina is believed to inhabit its human representative.

    There are more than 200 kachina characters who possess characteristics of real life personalities or repesent plants or animals. The ceremony offers the children a real-life connection with the kachina spirits. Kachinas give the little girls kachina dolls as a remembrance of the ceremony and to help her remember the messages of the kachinas.

    Carved from the roots of the cottonwood tree (the roots are what draws life-giving moisture), Kachinas can be classified in the following partial list:

    Ogres of many types: Discipline the community and naughty children (teacher's favorite)

    Bears and badgers: Best at healing(doctor's favorite)

    Eagle: A protector

    Animals: Many are hunters - also healers

    Warriors : Ewiro, Ahote, and many, many others

    Clowns: Koshari, Hano clowns, Koyemsi (mudheads), etc.

    Chief : Eototo and Aholi, his lieutenant

    Plants, birds, characters of other tribes (to draw thier powers), etc.
