Hopi Katcina Songs and Six Songs by Hopi Chanters

Hopi Katcina Songs and Six Songs by Hopi Chanters

Various Artists FW04394 / FE 4394

In traditional Hopi religious celebrations, adults dressed as deified ancestors―the Katcina―and handed out small painted Katcina figurines to children. This album contains songs associated with the Katcina as well as other Hopi dances described in the liner notes. The singers include Honyi, the leader of the Antelope Priesthood; Kutka, the chief of the Walpi tribe; Honauuh, the head priest of the snake ceremony; and Kakapti, a Hopi priest. The recordings were collected by Jesse Walter Fewkes (1850–1930), a Harvard-educated anthropologist who was the head of the Bureau of American Ethnology and Archaeology (1918–1928).
