Native American Hopi Carved Cold Bringing Woman Katsina Sculpture
Native American Hopi Carved Cold Bringing Woman Katsina Doll by Benjamin Kabinto
Cold Bringing Woman (Horo Mana or Yohozro Wuhti) appears on First Mesa during the Powamuya. She carries a Hopi comb in her hand to muss up peoples' hair when she appears with Nuvak'chin, her grandson. As her name implies, she brings the whiteness of winter. This wonderful sculpture by Benjamin shows the fierce wind blowing her hair straight up as a Grandmother Katsina comes out of the San Franciso Peaks and floats over the pueblo to protect the people and bring the Hopi clouds that are filled with moisture to fall on the land.
