The leather half-mask of a Long Hair Kachina, the Bringer of Gentle Rain. This Kachina has long, black hair to his waist and bangs in front. The long tail feather of a Macaw sticks up from the back of his head, and there are Eagle Prayer Feathers tied with home spun cotton hanging in front of his long beard that is square cut just above his waist.
“They are dancing. Barbarically beautiful, brilliantly colored. Gently waving their twigs of spruce, shaking their gourd rattles. Singing like the soughing of the wind through the pines. Stamping rythmically as the beat of the drum, insistently as the pulse of the earth.”
Frank Waters (1950)
