Kachinas

Kachinas are spirits from the western mountains that have the ability to bring rain and life to the Hopi people. They visit the Hopi for half of the year, returning back to their mountain homes for the other half. Some Kachinas are friendly, and they delight in dancing and bring presents to children. Other Kachinas haunt those who have done evil deeds and punnish them mercilessly.
