Spiritual entities in western Puebloan religious beliefs, Kachinas hold central significance across diverse cultures, including the Hopi and Tewa Village in Arizona, as well as the Zuni, Acoma, and Laguna Pueblos in New Mexico. Also known as katchina, katcina, or Katsina, these entities personify elements of the natural world, such as rain, animals, revered ancestors, and more. The term "kachina" derives from the Hopi word "kachi," signifying "spirit father," "life," or "spirit." With over 400 distinct kachinas existing in Hopi and Pueblo culture, variations abound from one pueblo community to another.
