ko · ko ·pel · li (kō kō pel’ lē) n. {der. from Hopi “Kokopilau” (koko –wood, pilau – hump)} the Humpbacked Flute Player, Hopi symbol for fertility.

Kokopelli, the mysterious Humpbacked Flute Player, has been a sacred figure to Native Americans of the Southwestern United States for thousands of years. Found painted and carved on rock walls and boulders throughout this region, Kokopelli is one of the most intriguing and widespread images to have survived from ancient Anasazi Indian mythology, and is a prominent figure in Hopi and Zuni legends.

Kokopelli is considered a symbol of fertility that brought well-being to the people, assuring success in hunting, planting and growing crops, and human conception. His “hump” was often considered a bag of gifts, a sack carrying the seeds of plants and flowers he would scatter every spring. Warming the earth by playing his flute and singing songs, Kokopelli would melt he winter snow and create rain, ensuring a good harvest. Kokopelli most often displayed a long phallus, symbolizing the fertile seeds of human reproduction.

Kokopelli’s whimsical nature, charitable deeds, and vital spirit give him a prominent position in Southwestern Indian mysticism as well as universal appeal.
