Kwikwilyaqa; Mocking Katsina, Striped-Nose Katsina


Kwikwilyaqa gets his name from the stripes on his nose. A clown and mimic, he makes the crowd laugh by imitating people and katsinam who catch his eye during ceremonies. He appears twice during the Powamuya procession and also during the Mixed Dance. (45-25-10/28862)
