Medium: Found 1940's Lifo Print. 'Squash Blossom'
Original drawing by Virginia Roediger.
“An individual drama is enacted by the Hawk Youth, Ki’ sha Ti’ yo, and his companion, the Hawk maiden, Ki’ sha Ma’ na. This is performed, in part, in the open, The youth is costumed with a brightly coloured, feather headdress. His chin is blackened, and so are his feet. The maiden carries a framework of crossed rods which are arranged to represent clouds. This is decorated with a squash blossom at each intersection. …The blossoms are beautifully contrived by a means which only the makers know how to produce and are handsomely dyed. After a long ritual, the youth and the maiden dance together. In the course of the dance, the maiden shakes the frame which she carries and dislodges the squash blossoms. The dance and other details of the drama symbolize the rebirth of all plants and all creatures — the new life that is now to begin.”
