Pesavensi (Donna Humetewa Kaye) Hopi, Arizona

The Butterfly Dance, a traditional autumn social dance of the Hopi, is also a ceremony for the squash, bean and corn harvest. Like most Hopi ceremonies, the Butterfly Dance is a petition for rain, good health and long life for all living things. The dance recognizes the butterfly for its beauty and its sacred role as a pollinator for flowers, medicine plants and corn.
