"HA HAI-I WUHTI" IS TRANSLATED AS "POUR WATER WOMAN". IN ONE HAND SHE IS DEPICTED AS POURING THE WATER OF LIFE FROM A GOURD OUT ONTO THE WORLD, AND IN THE OTHER, SHE IS USUALLY SHOWN WITH AN EAR OF CORN IN THE OTHER HAND. SHE IS THE MOTHER WHO NOURISHES ALL BEINGS BE THEY KACHINAS*, HUMANS, SENTIENT OR INSENTIENT. THE HOPIS PLACE HER AT THE CENTER OF ALL CREATION AND REGARD HER AS THE" MOTHER OF ALL KACHINAS."

HER HUSBAND IS EOTOTO THE CHIEF OF ALL OF THE KACHINAS, AND SHE CORRESPONDS IN A FEMALE ROLE TO HIS POSITION. SHE IS INCLUDED IN MOST OF THE IMPORTANT CEREMONIES SUCH AS THE HOPI SHALAKO, THE WATER SERPENT AND THE POWAMU. SHE IS ACTUALLY QUITE UNUSUAL IN THAT SHE HAS BEEN KNOWN TO BE QUITE VOCAL, A RARITY AMONG THE KACHINAS.

DOLL CARVERS MAKE HER EFFIGY IN THE FLAT FORM SO THAT IT MAY BE THE FIRST PRESENT THAT A BABY RECEIVES. THESE SAME DOLLS ARE ALSO GIVEN TO CAPTIVE EAGLES. LATER DOLLS IN FULL RELIEF ARE CARVED AND GIVEN TO THE GIRLS.

"*A KACHINA CAN REPRESENT ANYTHING IN THE NATURAL WORLD OR COSMOS, FROM A REVERED ANCESTOR TO AN ELEMENT, A LOCATION, A QUALITY, A NATURAL PHENOMENON, OR A CONCEPT."
