About this creation
Angwusnasomtaka or Crow Mother:

Angwusnasomtaka is the mother of the Hu or Whipper Kachinas and is considered by many Hopi to also be the mother of all kachinas. She appears during the Powamu or Bean Dance on all three mesas, however, on Third Mesa she is called Angwushahai-I, or Crow Bride, probably because she talks or sings and comes dressed entirely in white. During the Powamu she supervises the initiation of the children into the Kachina Cult and carries the yucca whips with which they are struck by the Hu Jachinas. Later in the ceremony she leads other kachinas into the village bearing in hear arms a basket of corn kernels and bean sprouts to symbolically start the new season.

"Remember that one creation by Dave Shaddix? The Indian thingy? I'd like to look at that again. What was it called? Angwa.. Ankwano... uh... Angwusnoam...? Oh well, can't find it. Guess I'll go sharpie some clones..." Thanks Dave - you're contributing to the mutillation of LEGO minifigures everywhere.
