“The central theme of the Kachina Cult is the presence of life in all objects that fill the universe.” — Barton Wright
“The concept of fertility is central in Hopi thinking. It applies not only to good crops but to the general multiplication of good and desired objects and beings . . . Thus, as women give birth to the people and cause them to multiply, so do the kachinas cause food and other blessings to multiply.” — Alice Schlegel
