The Traditions of the Hopi, by H.R. Voth, [1905], at


Lâ'vövölvipiki and Nö'nvövölpiki are great friends. Latter visits friend and they conclude to have dance. Lâ'vövölvipiki is to fetch mice maidens and Nö'nvövölpiki to borrow drum to have Paiute dance. Latter goes to Kwan kiva and borrows drum. He returns to friend's kiva and finds maidens already assembled. They practice songs and dances during night. In morning each mána has eagle feather tied to her head and red (lot on each cheek. While dancing Pö'okongs come hunting. Each shoots mouse and one of them eats Nö'nvövölpiki and other Lâ'vövölvipiki.
