Katsina Katchina Doll C3627GA pre-pubescent boy always portrays Kokosori. Formally his presentation was without clothing. He is one of the oldest recorded katsinas for the Hopi, as he was seen in 1852 according to documented records. He is best known in Zuni Pueblo, where his name is Shulawitsi. At both Zuni and Hopi, he is often referred to as the Fire God Katsina.  He appears on all three Hopi mesas in differing functions.  As portrayed here, he is shown after a successful rabbit hunt.
