Thomas O. Mills befriended author Frank Waters, who in 1963 had written The Book of the Hopi with his Hopi informant Oswald White Bear Fredericks. Their book included the Hopi Creation Story. Mills listened, read and began to draw his own original and provocative conclusions. In his book, he seeks to track actual events and history that may be buried within it and how this could relate to our future. This book, drawing together a variety of ideas that are usually considered separately, makes stimulating reading and is good material for classroom discussions on history, race, Hopi culture, astronomy and "myth." Mills's intuitive vision should spur scientists to look more closely into what we like to call "myths" or "stories" for their possible basis in historical fact. And today, as we worry about climate change and what it means for the future, shouldn't we also be figuring out whether modern technology can prevent the earth's next rotational shake-up, and how we plan to survive it?

Hopi, spoken in northern Arizona, is a member of the large Uto-Aztecan family of American Indian languages, which spreads over vast portions of the western United States and Mexico. The Hopi language textbook is directed at non-specialists who want to learn to speak Hopi or who simply want to learn something about the language. The content of the book consists of 30 lessons starting with the basic sounds of Hopi, covering fundamental points of Hopi grammar one by one, and leading the student to the construction of highly complex sentences. The grammatical material is introduced simply and with concrete illustrations at every point, and each lesson includes a variety of exercises with answers provided to help the student master the points presented. Interspersed with the lessons are 10 dialogs illustrating natural Hopi speech in specific situations. A limited amount of new vocabulary is introduced in each lesson and dialog. Hopi-English and English-Hopi lexicons summarize the vocabulary at the end of the volume. In addition, there are three short readings and four appendices pertaining to numbers, color terms, names of Hopi villages, and kinship terminology. (ERB)

The diverse people of the Hopi, whose name means "the peaceful ones," are today united on the Hopi Reservation, which is composed of 12 villages on more than 2,500 square miles in northeastern Arizona. In fact, the village of Orayvi is considered the oldest continuously inhabited settlement in the United States, dating back more than a millennium. Often referred to as a "corn culture," the Hopis have developed dry-farming techniques that have sustained them in the harsh, arid landscape, where annual precipitation is often only 12 inches or less. The Hopi people are hardworking and spiritual, and their lifestyle has survived for centuries, only minimally changed by influences from the outside world.

Hopi Stories Of Witchcraft Shamanism And Magic

The traditional Hopi world, as reflected in Hopi oral literature, is infused with magic?a seamless tapestry of everyday life and the supernatural. That magic and wonder are vividly depicted in this marvelous collection of authentic folktales. For the Hopis, the spoken or sung word can have a magical effect on others. Witchcraft?the wielding of magic for selfish purposes by a powaqa, or sorcerer?has long been a powerful, malevolent force. Sorcerers are said to have the ability to change into animals such as a crow, a coyote, a bat, or a skeleton fly, and hold their meetings in a two-tiered kiva to the northeast of Hopi territory. Shamanism, the more benevolent but equally powerful use of magic for healing, was once commonplace but is no longer practiced among the Hopis. Shamans, or povosyaqam, often used animal familiars and quartz crystals to help them to see, diagnose, and cure illnesses. Spun through these tales are supernatural beings, otherworldly landscapes, magical devices and medicines, and shamans and witches. One story tells about a man who follows his wife one night and discovers that she is a witch, while another relates how a jealous woman uses the guise of an owl to make a rival woman's baby sick. Other tales include the account of a boy who is killed by kachinas and then resurrected as a medicine man and the story of a huge rattlesnake, a giant bear, and a mountain lion that forever guard the entrance to Maski, the Land of the Dead.

From 1933 to 1937, the great American anthropologist Edward T. Hall lived and worked on reservations in the Southwest, a frontier where four cultures--Navajo, Hopi, Hispanic, and Anglo--clashed. Re-creating that stark and haunting landscape, Hall pieces together a firsthand account of two proud worlds--the frugal, Pueblo-dwelling Hopi with their isolated villages high on the mesa tops and their deeply felt religious faith and the Navajos, whose rhythm and ceremonious forms of respect Hall learned as he worked with them. In these early experiences, as Hall discovered the deeply human logic of these tribes, he began to recognize how culture itself, not only theirs but his own, was at work in each person's behavior. The respect he felt and diplayed won him a friendly Navajo nickname--Chiz Chili, meaning Slim Curly Hair--and a mentor, the great Indian trader, Lorenzo Hubbell. Set under the vast arch of sky in a place of unforgettable beauty, "West Of The Thirties" is about the Navajos and Hopis as one receptive young white man perceived them, but it is also about the core of being human, which Hall would later develop into a theory of implicit culture. In these pages, we see theory in the flesh, taking a hundred different human forms and engaging us in a lost world, the West of the thirties. "Hall vividly captures the emotions--fascination, awe, distrust--that accompany excursions into an unknown culture...Particularly enlightening."-- "The New York Times Book Review"
