Old Style Hopi Carved Korososta Traditional Planting Katsina Doll by the Katsinam
Korososta represents the seeds of different plants and has influence over the growth of the corn. He often carries corn kernels in his sack. The audience at the dance is anxious to receive any of this seed corn he cares to pass out. Sometimes he is called Ota from the first words of his song. His dances represent planting. This carving was handed out at a dance by the Katsinam.
