Kokopelli

Kokopelli is a prehistoric deity depicted hundreds of times in rock art, some of it over a thousand years old, located in numerous sites in southwestern United States deserts and mountains. Often depicted as a humpbacked flute player, this mythic being has survived in recognizable form from Anasazi times to the present. There is something appealing about Kokopelli which fascinates all kinds of people, even in our modern technological age.

 

The Anasazi or "Ancient Ones" were primarily farmers, growing corn, beans, and squash in the Four Corners area on the Colorado Plateau. Both the Basketmaker Period (dating at least from about 200 B.C.) and the Pueblo Period (dating from about 700 A.D.) include the humpbacked flute player among their deities or supernaturals. Long-distance trade networks and migrations from Mexico apparently helped spread cultural and religious elements, so that by 1500 A.D. fluteplayer images were also included in the Hohokam, Mogollon, and Fremont cultures, in petroglyphs (rock carving), pictographs (rock painting), kiva murals, ceramics and baskets. Today, Kokopelli is one of the Hopi kachinas, and is in many traditional stories and songs of Native Americans of the desert southwest.

KOKOPELLI POEMS AND STORIES:
 
               KOKOPELLI
The warmth of the first spring day,
I hear your gentle music play.
A gift you bring to all who hear,
the poetic beat of your lyre.
 
 
From ancient times and legends of old,
your hypnotic music has been fortold.
A soft, warm and strange melody,
dancing into the night endlessly.
 
Come, stranger from a distant place,
infuse us with your warmth and face.
Your song alludes of ancient history,
A past ingrained of starlight mystery.
 
Today your meaning still the same.
No past has washed away your name.
KOKOPELLI, KOKOPELLI
I hear those words in my dream!
