Originally the Kachinas or Katchinas (sometimes transcribed Katsina or Katsinam) are spirits in the mythology of the Hopi and the Zuñis Indians from New Mexico and Arizona, in the southwest of the United States. Spirits of fire, rain, snakes, or even playful and mischievous spirits, which are benevolent or evil... A sort of inventory of the visible and invisible worlds. Six months a year, during ritual festivities, these spirits are incarnated in masked and costumed dancers. Wooden dolls, painted in vivid colours, also named Kachinas, and representing these dancers, are offered to the children at the end of the festivities, so that they become familiar with the world of the spirits.
