This is a Native American Kokopelli background theme page. Kokopelli has inspired Native Americans for hundreds of years. Of the many beings depicted in ancient religious beliefs, rituals, folk tales, ceramics, rock art and murals of Southwestern American Indians, few are as appealing as Kokopelli.

To the Hopi, Kokopelli is also called "Kokopilau" - meaning "wood hump." To other Native American tribes he is known as Kokopele, Kokopetiyot, and Olowlowishkya. Most of the familiar depictions of Kokopelli are copied from Hopi art, which in turn is derived from ancient Anasazi glyphs. The first known images of Kokopelli appear on Hohokam pottery dated to sometime between AD 750 and AD 850. Kokopelli is a proper noun, so it should always be capitalized and used just like a name; it is commonly mispelled as Kokopeli. It should be pronunced: koh-koh-pell-ee. One can't really buy "an actual" Kokopelli, because he is a spirit; one can only "buy" the image an artist makes. It is said in Native American traditions that Kokopelli's fluteplaying chases away the Winter and brings about Spring. Many Native American tribes, such as the Zuni, also associate Kokopelli with the rains. He often appears with Paiyatamu, another flautist, in depictions of maize-grinding ceremonies. Some tribes believe he carries seeds and babies on his back. Some Native Americans regarded Kokopelli as a Spiritual Shaman with actual healing powers. When Hopi women could not bear children, they would seek him out because he was able to restore their childbearing powers. According to Hopi legend, Kokopelli spent most of his time impregnating and seducing the daughters of the village while his wife, Kokopelli Mana seduced the men.
