Kachina doll “Hemis” – HOPI.
This figure appears at the “Niman” dance or corn harvest dance in summer.
On the craddle headdress is represented the symbol of the squash blossom, the corn, clouds and rain of fertility, snow, hail. On the body we may see the symbol of wind and friendship, and some others associated with the power of the male way. Around the neck is like a crown made of spruce which represents the evergreen for a long life and prosperity.
