Also called Tcakwaina, this kachina appears in Hopi
, and Keresan
ceremonies, but does not appear in Tewa
ceremonies. Usually depicted as an ogre, with ferocious teeth and a black goatee and black mask with yellow eyes, it is often claimed that Chakwaina is a ceremonial representation of Estevanico, a Moroccan-born slave who led the first Spanish party to the Pueblo
tribes as a scout for the expedition of Fray Marcos de Niza
in 1539. Estevanico was said to have been killed by the Zuni. Although usually black, there are white or albino Chakwaina representations.
