The Antelope Kachina's dance is a prayer for more rain and for more Antelope. When he appears, he is often accompanied by the Mountain Sheep Kachina, and the Wolf Kachina. The motions the Antelope Kachina does when he dances are bending forward at the waist and resting the front part of the body upon the sticks that he usually carries. The sticks represent the front legs of an antelope.
