The Knife Wing is half man, half Eagle Zuni spirit. He is the hero of hundreds of folklore tales and the God of most Zuni tribes. He is represented as possessing a human form, furnished with flint knife-feathered pinions and tail. His dress consists of the conventional terraced cap. His weapons are the Great Flint-Knife of War, the Bow of the Skies, and the Arrow of Lightning. His guardians or warriors are the Great Mountain Lion of the North He was doubtless the original War God of the Zunis.
