These are inspired by Tootsa Kachinas, they are hummingbird dudes and they are all about flowers and even more about flowers that are being worn by beautiful ladies. You hook them up with some flowers and they will totally intermediate between you and the gods because gosh, thanks for the flowers yo. This is as much as I can gather based on my totally scholarly internets research.
Based on clowns and owls! The clowns run around and behave badly and if someone from the community is being bad, they’ll imitate the person so blatantly that everyone will know who they’re aping and they will feel BURNING SHAME. It’s a little passive aggressive. The owl guy (based on a kachina named Mongwhu) is just aggressive, if you’re doing something bad he comes outta nowhere and whacks you with a stick (stick not pictured). I admire his no-nonsense approach.
Based on a fox kachina called Letaiyo who loves running like the Tootsas like flowers (okay, maybe not as much as them, those guys are all about flowers.) and a hunter-type black wolf who I can't find a name for.... Presumably he's taking a break from creeping on antelopes to run around with these little yellow whippersnappers.
More drawings based on kachinas! For this installment I'm pulling inspiration from plants, with a flower kachina (look him up, his face really is a rainbow like that! It's great!) and Patung, a squash kachina. You might actually recognize the squash one - Ursula Vernon drew him too! [link] (She did better than I did, naturally, sigh she is perfect.)
