Kokopelli

Kokopelli, flute player, symbol of fertility and joy

Kokopelli is a mythical character often represented as a hunchback flute player, out of the ancient beliefs of the Natives from the American South-West.
A symbol of fertility, joy, feast, and long life, he is also a minstrel, a spirit of music, a storyteller, a rainmaker, a healer, a teacher, a joker-magician, a seducer.

Kokopelli possesses the wisdom of age. This merry traveler has a lesson for everyone. The most important seems to show us that we shouldn't take life too seriously. In certain myths, Kokopelli's bump contains seeds, plants, sacred or medicinal artefacts. While sowing the seeds out of his bump, he sings and plays his flute, blowing the breath of life. He is most welcome during the season of corn planting. In others, he talks to the wind and the sky. His flute can be heard in the breeze of spring, bringing warmth following the cold of winter.

According to this legend, Kokopelli brings good fortune and prosperity to anyone who will listen to his songs. His flute announces his coming and, as he leaves, the crop is bountiful. Kokopelli is a positive divinity, adored by the Navajo, Hopi, Zuni and Anasazi Indians.
