The Book of the Hopi is an excellent fact filled store of information about the Hopi culture, and I wouldn't be without a copy, since I love to read about indigenous cultures around the world.

These people hold so much wisdom that the world needs now. The book arrived swiftly and the distributor/seller is by: Although Hopi book bit dated, this book is still a relevant overview of the Hopi people, their life, culture, and conflicts.

The text is fascinating to read, and the photograph essays are gorgeous and fill in so many details on their own. This book is THE reference to get if you want to start to understand Hopi ways/5(12). And so begins Frank Waters' book of the Hopi.

Fully a third of the book is dedicated to telling the lore of this tribe, and through the saga you learn of a tradition that explains why this small group of people have been living in the same area for a millenia/5. The Hopi Indians have had Kachinas in their religion for over one thousand years.

Over the years many works have been published about the Kachinas. Most of these have discussed them from the white man's interpretation of what the Hopi have told him. This book gives readers the perspective of the Hopis.

The Hopi also predicted a number of technological changes that would signal the end of the Fourth World. Long before it happened, the elders said a “gourd of ashes” would fall on the Earth. This refers, of course, to nuclear explosions—first the atomic test blast at Trinity Site in New Mexico, then the dual holocausts at Hiroshima and Author: Garydavid.

The Hopi Tribe is a sovereign nation located in northeastern Arizona. The reservation occupies part of Coconino and Navajo counties, encompasses more than million acres, and is made up of 12 villages on three mesas. Since time immemorial the Hopi people have lived in Hopitutskwa and have maintained our sacred covenant with Maasaw, the.

Book of the Hopi by Frank Waters, Viking Press () Book Summary and Analysis by David Worrell. Published five years before Castaneda's first book, so the possibility that a young anthropology student interested in the southwest might easily have encountered this work is not at all far-fetched.

There will be few comments on my part--mostly quotes—appearing in italics. 'Book of the Hopi' 50 years later Published 50 years ago by Penguin, the “Book of the Hopi” had a cult following during the ’60s.

The book continues to have relevance for those wanting to understand the tribe’s culture and religion. Hopi Runners provides a window into this venerable tradition at a time of great consequence for Hopi culture. The book places Hopi long-distance runners within the larger context of American sport and identity from the early s to the s, a time when Hopis competed simultaneously for their tribal communities, Indian schools, city athletic.

The Hopi maintain a complex religious and mythological tradition stretching back over centuries. However, it is difficult to definitively state what all Hopis as a group believe.

Like the oral traditions of many other societies, Hopi mythology is not always told consistently and each Hopi mesa, or even each village, may have its own version of a particular story.

Hopi (hō´pē), group of the Pueblo, formerly called Moki, or speak the Hopi language, which belongs to the Uto-Aztecan branch of the Aztec-Tanoan linguistic stock, at all their pueblos except Hano, where the language belongs to the Tanoan branch of the Aztec-Tanoan linguistic stock (see Native American languages).They occupy several mesa villages in NE Arizona and in numbered.

The seventy-nine Kachinas depicted in this book were painted by Neil David, Sr., a Hopi-Tewa from First Mesa, in the village of Hano, Arizona. The paintings show both the front and back of each Kachina; that is the entire costume of the Kachina.

The following extraordinary Hopi prophecy was first published in a mimeographed manuscript that circulated among several Methodist and Presbyterian churches in Some of the prophecies were published in by Frank Waters in The Book of the Hopi.

They speak a Northern Uto-Aztecan language. The precise origin of the Hopi is unknown, although it is thought that they and other Pueblo peoples descended from the. The book of Hopi is an amazing and beautiful book, revealing the story of this ancient tribe as told by the Hopi elders to John Walters, who spent years to research the traditions and myths of the people living in the dry and hot Southwest.5/5(6).

In this strange and wonderful book, thirty elders of the ancient Hopi tribe of Northern Arizona -- a people who regard themselves as the first inhabitants of America -- freely reveal the Hopi worldview for the first time in written form.

We toured the First and Second Mesas, took a walking of Walpi with a local resident, had a nice lunch at the Hopi Cultural Center with the option to sample traditional Hopi food /5(). Then again, if you take Helaman 3 literally in a way that explains the Hopi, and you believe that some ancestors of the Hopi literally "did spread insomuch that they began to cover the face of the whole earth, from the sea south to the sea north, from the sea west to the sea east," then you have other problems.

Like DNA and linguistics.
