Longhair Kachina
Angak'tsina is perhaps the most friendly of the friendly katsinam. He is truly a Hopi Katsina, as indicated by the traditional hair-style worn by Hopi men after their initiation into the priesthood society. Eagle fluffs are worn on the katsina's long hair and beard which represents a cloud burst or rain. They are accompanied by Yellow and/or White Corn Maidens, and their songs carry positive messages for life fulfillment of all life forms.
