Chakwaina Sho-adta or Chakwaina Mana or He-e-e is a Warrior Kachina. The story is the same with all of these representations. While preparing for her daily chores Chakwaina Mana helped to defeat the advancing enemy and has been honored ever since. The differences in her name, and the slight alterations in her appearance, come only from with whom she dances.
