The rich history of the Hopis is still being celebrated today throughout the Arizona lands they call home. Readers explore the events that shaped the Hopis as a people, from their battles with the Spanish in the 1600s to their present-day struggles balancing tradition with economic growth through tourism. Readers discover the Hopi settlement of Oraibi, the oldest surviving settlement in the United States, and see what life is like on the desert mesas where the people of the Hopi Nation live today. Detailed photographs of Hopi artwork, homes, and ceremonies bring readers into the world of this unique culture.
