Ewtoto, the chief of all katsinam, is a katsina spiritual father and an important member of the katsina priesthood. Because he controls the seasons, he appears several times during Powamuya, and again during Niman. During Powamuya, he helps to bring rain to the villages by drawing cloud symbols on the ground with corn flour. (45-25-10/28847)
