Who is Kokopelli?

Where the Kokopelli legend lives on......

Kokopelli

Kokopelli is the Native American legendary whimsical humped back flute player who traveled the southwest over a 1,000 years ago (some estimates are about 3,000 years ago). He is depicted in petroglyphs, religions, rituals, folk tales, ceramics, and murals of the Southwestern Indians. There is evidence he was an important deity to the Southwestern Indians and may have been as important to them as Abraham is to Jews, or Paul to the Christians.

Some legends report Kokopelli as a symbol of happiness and joy, traveling from village to village playing his flute. He was also thought to be a prankster and a fertility god who would play his flute, play pranks, and when he left in the morning all the women were pregnant and the crops were plentiful.

The word Kokopelli comes from 2 Hopi words, koko for wood and pilau for hump.
