The word Kachina (Katsina) means “The Spirit of Something”
When it refers to a person, it means “a person who has fully united with the spirit.”
The result of opening the Kopavi and calling down one’s spirit is to become a Katsina or person who is wholeness with the spirit. This results in a transformation of self and a remembrance of all things experienced throughout time by the individual. A Katsina person is one who has achieved friendship and equality with Creator and control over their own personal reality.
Katsina dancers are in some cases impersonating people who made this transformation in the past and who will return after the great shaking from another dimension through the gateways where the separation between dimensions is thin.
