"The Kokopelli is the representative of fertility.  They pray and play their flutes to Tawa-ee-Ta-na (Sun, our Father) to bless us with rain for our corn.  Corn is the main food by which Hopi survive.  When we came up from the 'si-pa-pu' (entrance into the fourth world) the people were given corn, a planting stick and a jar of water by Ma-sau the deity who this world belongs.  He said if we are able and willing to toil and to live a simple life by using the tools he gave us, we were welcome to stay..the easy life in the third world led to corruption and then the destruction of that world." (As told to us by Dorothy Poleyma-Kyasyousie)
