Leena H, if we are reading all the same books, then great! We'll be able to discuss them better with one another.
Like this one that I'm reading right now (besides other books at the same time haha). It is so revealing about what these Indian tribes have going on in their entire existences.
For example, the Hopi Indians of Arizona. In the "Orion Zone" by Gary A. David, in chapter 7 "A Rainbow Fading Into The Chasm Of Night--the Hopi Katsinam"...on page 163: [tell me if this doesn't sound like what the remote viewers have been describing!]
"On a Flute altar in Oraibi, Fewkes found a carved figure, reputed to be Sotuknang, of an anthropomorphic bird with zigzag lightning designs down long slender legs. He thought this was a homologue of the Northern Plains mythical Thunder Bird, in Lakota (Sioux) known as "Wakinyan." In addition to appearing in the mixed katsina dances, Sotuknang participates in the puppet ceremony (GEEZ! I WONDER WHAT THAT REPRESENTS) usually held in March (described briefly in the Wupatki section of Chapter 4), which involves Palulukang, the horned (LIZARD?) (or plumed) serpent. In some cases Sotuknang is associated with Morning Star (OR, LUCIFER?), so his Mesoamerican connection with the Mayan Kukulkan (the Aztec deity Quetzalcoatl), whose emblematic star is Venus, seems particularly apt. As omniscient chief of all creation, Sotuknang possesses the additional attribute of "Watcher" or "Protector." This suitably complements one of the connotations of the actual word "katsina," i.e., "one who listens."
Undoubtedly, many other katsinam with sidereal aspects exist, but the final one we will discuss is called Sohu, or Star Katsina. His most prominent feature is the three, vertical four-pointed stars, arranged horizontally in a row across the top of his head. These, of course, bring to mind the most important constellation in Hopi cosmology, Orion, in particular his belt. These stars are interspersed between four vertical eagle feathers. This katsina has dark straight hair, goggle eyes, and diamond-shaped teeth. On his right cheek is painted an equilateral cross (star), on his left a crescent moon. He wears a fringed buckskin shirt and a kilt made of radiating turkey feathers, both of which are peculiar attire for a katsina. As Baron Wright succintly notes, "He does not resemble the usual Hopi Katchina." Fewkes says that Sohu has stars painted on his forearms and legs. He holds yucca whips in both hands, and a fox skin trails behind him.
Fewkes remarks that the figure described above, is the First Mesa (Walpi) version of Sohu, which he spells Coto. The Third Mesa (Oraibi) variation, he says, appears with a single large four-pointed star in the middle of a square mask. It also wears a trailing eagle feather headdress, customary to the Plains Indians. The latter katsina, however, is commonly known as Na-ngasohu, the Chasing Star (or Planet) Katsina, and is thought to represent a comet."
