Mudhead Kachina

COUNTRY: United States/Hopi Nation
LANGUAGE: Hopi/vocables

GENRE: Native American (Hopi)

Found on the Smithsonian release, “Indian Music of the Southwest.” This is a Hopi rain dance. In music class we sing this while shaking nutshells and dancing around the room calling for rain. We should also delve a bit into the Hopi tradition of crafting dolls to personify the world’s several hundred kachinas, spirit-beings.
