About the kachina

Kachinas are given in hope of future wealth and wellbeing, and are often used teaching tool the next generation. These figures bridge young and old, as well as teach non-natives about the spiritual world. Each year, Kachinas come to bring life and renewal, when they return to the spiritual world they take the prayers of the native people with them.

This dance ceremony features the prestigious Eagle Dancer kachina as well as Crow Man, Crow Mother, and Owl kachinas. It is likely the dance is to ward off any disobediance as each of the kachinas on the lower level have yucca reeds in their hands.
