"The name of this kachina
often changes from mesa to mesa. As Teanau, one of the old ones
of the Bakab (Reed) Clan at First Mesa, he appears during the
March ceremonies, or during the Ankwati when the Water Serpent
is carried down to the spring for certain rites.
In this role Tcanau appears
as four individuals who are guardians for the Palolokong. His
role on Second Mesa is unknown, but on Third Mesa he again appears
as a guardian. Under the name of Saviki he is one of the Bow
Clan ancients and appears as a single individual with Tangik'china
and tow Kokoshoya when the Salako comes in person during Ankwati.
The snake that the kachina
carries in his mouth is a bull snake, and generally there is
a lizard above his eyes."
