The Sipikne is a Zuni Kachina often danced by the Hopi . His Zuni name is Salimopaiyakya but among the Hopis he may be called Sipikne or Talaimochovi. He dances in a very active manner bounding about and raising his knees much higher than the usual kachina. The dance is so demanding that only young men usually take this personation. He functions as a guard to keep people back from certain other kachinas. He usually comes during the night dances, the bean dance, mixed katsina dance and other ceremonial dances.
