~~~ KOKOPELLI ~~~

Beautiful, vibrant colors of the southwest, are the perfect backdrop for Kokopelli.

The Kokopelli spirit is thought to have control over fertility...both human and agricultural. Kokopelli has sometimes been associated with trickery and music. The humpbacked flute player that is commonly recognized as a symbol of Southwestern cultures comes from the less widespread characteristic of the Kokopellis as a musician. Some native groups believed that the deity wandered between villages with songs on his back, spreading seeds along with music.
