The Crow or Angwus Kachina is also often referred to as Crow Man or Crow Father, although he has no direct connection with Crow Mother Kachina or Crow Bride Kachina. This kachina is one of the warriors who make war on the clowns during the Plaza Dances or who appear in the Soyohim of late spring.
"He comes to threaten the clowns for their immoderate behavior, appearing again and again until finally he and others who have the same function descend upon the clowns and thoroughly chastize them." In spite of this the Crow Kachina is considered a "bad bird."
This dance is not as common as it might have been at one time, and according to Barton Wright's Kachinas: a Hopi Artist's Documentary, you might have the satisfaction of occassionally seeing a performance "in one of the night ceremonies in March or during the Powamu."
"Usually the personator imitates the step or motion and cry of the eagle to absolute perfection. There is evidence that this kachina was imported into Zuni from the Hopi and is danced there in much the same manner that it is at Hopi.
This may be why the Eagle may appear during Pamuya on First Mesa with Zuni Kachinas."
Mongwu aka Great Horned Owl
The Great Horned Owl or Mongwa Katsina is constantly at war with the clown Kachinas. When the clown Kaichinas are in their typical bad behavior, the Great Horned Owl watches them, and will give a screech, of disapproval. They can be seen with other warrior Katsinas on Third Mesa.
