Horo Mana, Mason Wuhti, Yohazro Wuhti "Cold Bringing Woman". This Hopi Kachina usually appears during Powamu on First Mesa, AZ. Her function is to bring the cold to the Hopi, just as does the Nuvak'chin Mana. She carries yucca whips and messes up people's hair, much like the winter winds. Dolls in her effigy are quite unusual! Just as we have brought her to Indian Summer...she has been true to her name and brought the cold weather to us! (Thank goodness she hasn't messed my hair up too badly yet!) If you enjoy Kachinas, please check out our great assortment at Indian Summer Native American Art, and be sure to wear a warm jacket..oh, and bring a comb! ~LOL~
