                  S64: ZDNI KATCINAS [ETH. ANN. 47

                  of the priests. The feather from the shoulder of the eagle belongs
                  to the hunters' society; the red hawk feather to Ciwana'kwe; wing
                  feathers of the eagle, combined with downy feathers and duck
                  feathers, and fastened to small reeds form the "great feather"
                  (lacowan îan'a), the badge of a bow priest, is worn by ail warrior
                  impersonations.~ The way it is wom is prognostic. If the tips of
                  the feathers point backward the katcina cornes peaceably, but if the
                  tips point forward his intentions are hostile, for this is the way war-
                  riors wear thé feather on the warpath.

                  The following myth is told to account for the feathers of kateinas.
                  WHT THE KATCINAS WEAR EAGLE FEATHERS

                  Long ago a boy was set up on a cliff by the witches. He was
                  starving to death. For four days he had nothing to eat.
                  This boy had a friend, a witch boy, who asked him what he knew.
                  He said, "I do not know anything." So then the witch boy said, "I
                  shall rub you ail over with a black ant and then nothing can harm
                  you." He did that and then he took a hoop and jumped through it
                  and tumed into a chipmunk. He told the boy to do the same and
                  said it was easy and that he could tum himself back into a person
                  whenever he wanted to. So thé boy did it. Then they went up a
                  mountain to hunt. The witch boy went ahead and told him to wait
                  for him while he went to look for birds' nests. Then he turned him-
                  self back into a person and gave the hoop to the other boy and told
                  him to turn himself back into a person too. Then he turned himself
                  back into a person and the witch boy said, "Now do you want me to
                  teach you how to do it yourself, the way my mother taught me?"
                  The boy said, "No, 1 am afraid." Then the witch boy went away
                  and told him to wait for him. Then he went away and left him there
                  and the poor boy waited for four days. He had nothing to eat and
                  he cried a great deal. This was at the place Hakwininakwe, where
                  they get black paint for prayer sticks.

                  The eagle lived a little ways to the nortn and while he was in his
                  nest he thought he heard something crying a little way to the south.
                  Next morning he went out to hunt. About noon he remembered he
                  had heard something crying in the night and he said, "Oh dear, I
                  wanted to go and see who was there to the south. I heard something
                  crying just like a human person. I wonder who it is, because no one
                  ever cornes up here." Then the eagle went to the south and flew
                  around four times and finally he saw the boy sitting in the crack in
                  the rocks, fast asieep. The eagle came down and sat down beside
                  him. He was sitting there in his feathers, waiting. He thought the
                  boy would never wake up. Then he took off bis feather dress and he
                  The lacowan !ana of the bow priests is made in the Ant Society house with special prayers. (Cf. also
                  Hopi hnrnmkwa.) "The war chiefs do not have mi-we, but they have the gréât feather and it is just
                  as sacred."
