    Palhik’ Mana means “Water Maiden Girl,” referring to the substance consumed

    by women when they dance during the Mamzrau (Women’s Society) Initiation

    Dance. Therefore, this is not a katsina, but a figure representing a woman’s

    dance personage. The Palhik’ Mana shares many visual similarities with the

    Butterfly Kachina Girl and with Poli Mana.
