Hopi Fertility God


God of Dating and Mating

He’s a jolly hunchback soul who skips around playing the flute and inspiring the fruits of love to blossom. Rather like the horny old PAN, he is a primitive God of carefree lust. And consequently very popular.

His most important organ is uncommonly large — and also detachable. Forget Cupid’s arrow; if you’re a young maiden taking a quick dip, you could find KOKOPELLI’s weapon being fired at you. And while you may enjoy the experience, the patter of tiny feet are sure to follow.

KOKOPELLI also takes part in corn grinding rituals as he loves a good gyration, and can even cause a quick downpour to cool things off afterwards. Life is never dull with Koko the clown. See also TONENILI.
