                  144 THE ACOMA INDIANS [ETH.ANN.47

                  he had disappeared when they reached the door. He returned to
                  Wenirnats' and told his fellows. They were very angry and decided
                  to retum to Kacikatcutia and destroy the village. That night the
                  war ciy "Ah-a-a-a-a-a Ai!" alarmed the whole village. Masewi and
                  his brother went out, meeting four scouts from Wenimats'. The
                  scouts told the brothers that the k'a'~tsina were going to come and kill
                  everyone. Masewi and Oyoyewi returned and began preparing for
                  defense. They got pôles and skins and made a barricade (ai~tcmi).
                  (See the account of the "fight" ceremony, also the other myth
                  describing this episode.)

                  The morning following thousands of k'a'~tsina were seen running
                  toward Kacikatcutia from the west, raising a big cloud of dust. They
                  were met by the people of the village, the women behind, the men
                  in front. They fought ail day. Many people were killed. If a
                  k'a'~tsina was killed he immediately came to life again and resumed
                  fighting. At nightfall the fighting ceased and the k'a'~tsma returned
                  to Wenimats~. Most of the people had been killed. The rest were
                  very sad. And they quarreled among themselves, blaming each other
                  for their misfortune.

                  The next day thé scouts returned from Wenimats'. They told the
                  people that they would never see the k'a'~tsina again. If, however,
                  they wished them to come in spirit they should dress just like the
                  k'a'~tsina, pray in the usual way, and then impersonate the k'a'~tsina
                  in their dances.

                  The following days were spent burying the dead and in mourning.
                  A month or two passed, when Masewi summoned the people to-
                  gether to talk again about the k'a'~tsina. They finally decided to
                  impersonate the k'a'~tsina as they had been directed by thé go~maio-
                  wic. So Masewi and his brother began to make masks. But they
                  did not take all of the people into their confidence, because many
                  were skeptical; they did not think that such a substitute would be
                  effective. With six or eight men thé two brothers prepared as many
                  masks to represent k'a'~tsma. Then they built a house in which to
                  practice songs and dances.

                  Early one morning two men, dressed as go'maiowic, left the village
                  and went out west. At daybreak they returned to the village. The
                  people who were ignorant of the scheme were very frightened; they
                  feared another attack. Masewi and his brother met thé scouts in
                  thé plaza. The scouts said that the k'a'~tsina would come to visit
                  them in four days. Everyone was glad, and set about making prep-
                  arations for their reception. Peace was to be made. On the third
                  day Masewi appointed three war chiefs-a head cbief and two lieu-
                  tenants-and told them how to receive the k'a'~tsina.
                  In the morning of the fourth day two scouts arrived in the village,
                  followed by six or eight k'a'~tsina, Masewi and his brother taking
