Kokopelli Definition and Kokopelli Products

Popular with Native Americans, Kokopelli is a quirky flute-playing character whose image dates back over 3,000 years. Ancient carvings depicting the hunchback have been found on canyon walls and rocks in the Southwest region of America and, although his exact origins aren't known, there are many fascinating myths and beliefs associated with him.

Kokopelli is said to have travelled around villages bringing the changing of seasons - ending the harsh winter weather, creating milder temperatures and much-needed rain for successful harvests. The hunch on his back is thought to be due to the sack of seeds and songs he carried with him, his flute symbolises the transition from winter to spring, and the macaw feathers adorning his headdress are said to represent the spirit world. He's also known for his powers of fertility. Legends claim that all the villagers would sing and dance when Kokopelli arrived, and soon after every woman would be with child.

Today Kokopelli is still a popular figure in art and jewellery. Wearing the image symbolises a connection with music and fun and, for some, the desire for fertility.
