Wupamo (Long-Billed) Kachina
Wupamo is both a chief and a guard. He appears as a guard during
the Bean Dance, but he may also serve in this same capacity at secret ceremonies in the kivas
or assist with the cleaning of the springs by keeping the men on the job. During
*Powamu he may be seen patrolling the procession to keep the onlookers clear of the
route or urging the laggard clowns onward.
* The Powamu Ceremony is also called the Bean Planting Festival. It is observed in late January or early February and lasts 8 days.
