Si'o Avatshoya; Zuni Corn Katsina

 

Si´o Avatshoya was introduced to Hopi a long time ago by the Zuni, who call him Nawisa. He is a member of the plant family. On First Mesa he appears most often at Pamuya with other katsinam who came from Zuni. He plays an important role by helping Hopi corn germinate and grow. (45-25-10/28843)
