Near the spring solstice, the Dawa (or Sun) comes to each village to awaken the Kachinas and let them know that he is rising higher in the sky. With this, he brings the promise to the Hopis that the kachinas will once again return to dance. He is the Father of all creation and as he rises in the eastern sky, he gathers the prayers of all people. At dusk, he will take the prayers to the other world to be heard.
