Truth of a Hopi By Edmund Nequatewa
Paperback: $15.16
Ships in 3-5 business days
The Hopi, who occupy an area in the high desert plateaus of the Southwest, are one of the best known Native American tribes. They have a rich mythological cycle about their ascent from a world deep... More > inside the earth. This is one of the rarest types of ethnographic documents, one actually written by a native American. The bulk of this book covers the historical legends of the Hopi. The Hopi 'theory' (Nequatewa's word) was that the 'Bahana' (the white people) emerged from the under-world alongside the Hopi, and went off in search of the truth. Someday they would return and live in harmony with the Hopi, bringing wisdom and great abundance. Throughout, Nequatewa relates incidents and characterizations of Hopis that go far beyond the 'Noble Savage' stereotypes of brave warriors and laconic wisemen. The Hopi who occupy these pages are all too human, and that alone is a drop of truth that is missing from accounts of the Hopi, even to the present day.< Less

Ships in 3-5 business days
Take a journey back in time to a summer spent on the Hopi Reservation of Arizona where the author learned the ancient Hopi wisdom and most importantly, the pathway to full and total spiritual... More > transformation. The author slept on the floor, toiled in the fields, dug up clay to make pots and tended the fires, but this humble experience had a truly profound affect -- the butterfly effect of personal spiritual awakening. This book is the second in the trilogy: THE MEDICINE WOMAN and follows Ocean of Stars, Sacred Circle. The final book: Vision Quest - Journey to the Sacred Tree, explores the northern tradition of the vision quest in the rocky mountains and the author's personal journey of love found and lost.< Less

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... More > 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?< Less

Lost in Translation: Rethinking Hopi Katsina Tithu and Museum Language Systems By Rachel E. Maxson, Chip Colwell-Chanthaphonh, and Lee Wayne Lomayestewa
Paperback: $38.50
Ships in 3-5 business days
This report presents the ways in which Hopi katsina tithu— popularly known as kachina dolls—are outstanding examples of objects that museums can recontextualize with Native terminology.... More > The etymology, or a word or phrase’s use history, of each katsina tihu’s name documents the deep connection of these objects with Hopi belief, ritual, and history. Without including the complex practices of Hopi naming, documentation of these objects in museum catalogues is often incomplete and inaccurate. Using contemporary Hopi perspectives, historic ethnographies, and the Hopi Dictionary to create a database of Hopi katsina tithu names, this project demonstrates how museums might incorporate intangible heritage into their collections through language and etymological context.< Less

Chowilawu is a very short story centered around a lone cowboy created by his past. He begins life as an American tossed aside by his mother, adopted by the Hopi, and then transformed into a new...

Written in beautifully passive prose, Chowilawu would add itself to the Hemmingway, Cather, McCarthy cannon, and cause explosions amongst genre borders, if it were to be expanded into a novel.< Less
