Gerald Dawavendewa (Hopi & Cherokee(

Palikwmana (Butterfly Maiden) is a katsina spirit representing moisture, rain, fertility, and life. Qualities that she shares with the butterflies. 

With a headdress of flowers and moisture, she wears an embroidered dress with symbols of rain, flowers and abundantplants life. She us surrounded by corn and rain clouds, all prayers for a good life.

Katsinam are benevolent spirits that bring their ceremonies to the Hopi. These ceremonies are woven throughout the year until their return to the spirit world. They will often bring gifts including carved figures of katsinam (tihu) that they will present to the young girls. Katsinam represent many roles, from warriors, animals, plants and elements such as rain and stars. As a bridge between this world and the spirit, they are a reminder of how life should be lead.
