                  92 THE ACOMA INDIANS

                  [ETH. ANN. 47

                  When the warriors reach the mesa the cacique and some men go
                  down to meet them. They take the big clubs away from the warriors
                  and give them smaller, less dangerous ones. The cacique and the
                  Antelope men hold the warriors back with their ya'Bi while Tsitsinûts
                  and Dyaitsko'tmne go to the top of the mesa to the barricade. They
                  place their forearms on the ai~tcin' and their heads on their arms and
                  cry. Then they pray.~

                  After Tsitsînùts and Dyaitsko'tume have had time to pray, one of
                  the Antelope men cries "Cauo!" (Let's go!), and they rush up the
                  mesa, followed by thé clamorous k~a'~tsina. The Antelope men join
                  thé people south of the pond. They hold the k'a'~tsina back with
                  theirya'Bi until all have gathered, when one of the Antelope men again
                  cries "Cauo!" Then they all run back of the screen (the ai~tcin').
                  The warrior k~a'~tsina then run up to the barricade, one at a time,
                  pray, and then strike it with their clubs four times. The cacique
                  stands by to see that none strikes it more than four times. Should
                  one do this, the cacique will order two of the warriors to seize him
                  and beat him with their clubs.

                  When all of the k'a'~tsina have struck the screen the aitcinititca
                  (the men who tend the barricade), assisted by the o'pi, take the
                  barricade to the next station, where it is erected, and the same pro-
                  cédure is followed. At the third station the o'pi eut the throats
                  of some of the k'a'~tsina. (Four days before the fight each warrior
                  k~a'~tsina goes to one of the o'pi taking a waBa~n' (feather, q. v.),
                  with wbich he prays, and arranges with him to eut his throat, care-
                  fully designating the time and place, and perhaps giving him a
                  sign of recognition. This is to insure having one's throat eut by a

                  Each time the ai~tcin' is moved the warriors are held back with
                  ya'Bi until it is erected in place. When the o'pi cuts the gut of blood
                  at the k'a'~tsina's throat the blood runs out onto the ground, where it
                  remains. This is a sacrifice to the earth. If a k'a'~tsina has more
                  than one gut of blood he will have his throat cut again. They lie face
                  downward on the ground after their throats are eut, and pray.
                  Masewi and his brother come around to the slain k'a-tsina and with
                  their flints and bows touch their heads, shoulders, backs, and legs.
                  This resurrects them. They come to life slowly and finally stand up.
                  Gradually they regain their former fury, and grabbing up a club dash
                  into the nght once more. Sometimes though the k'a'~tsina does not
                  recover, but continues to lie inert on the ground where he fell. Tn
                  such a case the other warriors will drag him up to the screen (ai'tein)
                  and lean him against it. Only k'a'~tsina are killed in the fight; the
                  Antelope men and the o'pi are not killed.

                  75 TsHstnuts, it wiU be remembered, was in the Bght at .Kacfkateat" He tried to pacify the k'a''tsma
                  before the fight; he did notwish them to destroythe village. Now he and Dyaitsko-tume ("he of the Pinon
                  Mountain," a mountain west of Acoma) try to restrain the warriors; they do not wish to Sght the pueblo.
