The Kokopelli, or Hump Back Flute Player, is associated with the Hopi Flute Clan and is the symbol of happiness, joy and universal fertility: humans, crops, domestic and wild animals. He is often a part of rituals related to marriage, conception and birth and has been a part of the Ancient Pueblo Peoples since Hohokam times (AD 750  – 850). The Kokopelli is a presence in Hopi legends, and can appear in ceremonies as a kachina (katsina) dancer.
