                  Newe'kwe face painting. That illustrated is the face painting of
                  Bitsitsi.) The body paint is pink clay rnixed with ashes.
                  He does not always dress like a human person, the way he is shown
                  in the picture, but he dresses like a society member, that is, barefooted
                  and all naked except for a small blue kilt. But sometimes he dresses
                  funny, he hangs onions in his ears and does other things like that to
                  make people laugh. He always carries the Ne'we'kwe baton.
                  "He is the Ne'we'kwe of the katcinas. They have Ne'we'kwe in
                  the Sacred Lake just as we have here."

                  C'en~KO?Mes.–"He comes after Ca'lako to bring in the Corn maids.
                  In the story he is the one who finds the Corn maids and so he and
                  Pautiwa bring them in. Then he comes unmasked and he must be a
                  Ne'we'kwe man. When he comes with the Corn maids we call him
                  Bitsitsi. When thé earth was soft Bitsitsi himself used to come, but
                  now a human man of the society of Ne'we'kwe brings them in 22
                  He cornes masked during the winter, sometimes in the mixed dance
                  and sometimes by himself. Sometimes he cornes to sing for Hilili.
                  Sometimes a whole crowd will come and act like Ne'we'kwe.
                  "If any kiva wants to dance Ne'we'kwe, they will not dance real
                  Ne'we'kwe, but they will dance Nehekalo with masks. The headman
                  caUs the men together and asks who will be men and who women.
                  Then they make up their songs and practice them. They make up
                  funny songs. They say they have come from the Sacred Lake be-
                  cause their mothers were corning and they did not want them to corne
                  alone, and that they are afraid that their wives will be stolen. After
                  they are ready they send in a messenger to announce that they will
                  dance, and the next day they get their clothing ready. Then the
                  headman goes to the headman of the Ne'we'kwe society and tells
                  him that they are going to dance Ne'we-kwe and asks the Ne'we'kwe
                  people to come and drum for them. Then the Ne'we'kwe man says,
                  'Very well. We are glad to have you do it, for our clothes are worn
                  out.' Each man who is dancing makes himself a necklace of black
                  yarn and a bracelet of yarn for the right wrist.

                  "Then the Ne'we'kwe man tells his assistant that the kiva has
                  chosen them and they ail go over there to be with them. Then they
                  all dress in ceremonial costume and take their drum and go over to
                  the kiva. Each man brings his Ne'we-kwe baton, for the men who are
                  going to dance. They corne in and then each one gives his baton to
                  one of the dancers with a prayer. He prays for good weather and
                  for luck in the dance. Then each of the dancers has one of the
                  borrowed wands. Two real Ne'we'kwe men will lead the dance.
                  They carry their children on their backs to make the people believe
                  that they have really come from the Sacred Lake with their chiidren.
