Mosairu Mana

12" total height

"This Kachina may also be referred to as Mosairu Mana. This is simply the Buffalo Maiden Kachina who accompanies the Buffalo Kachina at dances in which that Kachina appears.

"The tablet on her back is a sun symbol surrounded by turkey feathers. She will carry notched prayer sticks in both hands. Kachinas having lives, like other Hopis, may have manas, such as wives, mothers and sisters, who accompany them.

"Shungopavi, Second Mesa: This Kachina appears only at First and Third Mesas and does not appear at Second Mesa. She will use eagle tail feathers rather than turkey tail feathers on her back's tablita."
