A Hopi maiden holds a bowl of blue corn meal surrounded by flowers nourished by rains announced by a rainbow. She wears her hair in a style called Poli’ini which represents butterflies on each side of the young women’s head. Butterflies bring moisture, rain and pollen which gives life to flowers and helps the continuation of life as she also gives life through the birth of children. This hair style is worn after she completes the puberty ceremony. When she is younger she wears her hair in horizontally whorls on each side of her head called Pölansomi. This unique hair style has been worn for over two millennium as shown on ancient rock petroglyphs and paintings.
