Kokopelli has been a source of wonder throughout the country for centuries and is worshipped by many Native American tribes in the Southwestern United States. Kokopelli dates back over 3,000 years ago, when the first petroglyphs were carved. As a fertility symbol, the legendary Kokopelli presides over both childbirth and agriculture, and is also depicted as a roving minstrel or trader, rain priest, hunting magician, story-teller, healer, trickster, and seducer of maidens.
His name means "koko" for wood and "pilau" for hump Kokopelli brings us happiness, fertility and long life. The hump on his back is said to be full of seeds, which are scattered over the earth to bring new crops. The flute being a phallic symbolism, some have called him the "Cassanova of the Cliff Dwellers." In a Winnebago variation of the legend, he possessed a detachable penis he would float downstream which, undetected, would impregnate the maidens bathing in the river. In other legends, he would bring the Spring, his flute music warming the earth and causing the villagers to dance the night away. In the morning, the crops would be sprouting, and all the women would be pregnant. In all, his music is thought to bring joy, a regeneration of life, and gaiety.
