relationships to the Hopi.
Hopi is divided into three re-
gions: First Mesa, Second Me-
sa and Third Mesa. While lan-
guage, customs and traditions
are similar from mesa to mesa,
each conducts its own ceremo-
nies and has cultural features
that are totally unique from one
Many of the villages stand 300
feet above the valley below and
provide awesome vistas of the
sky and distant horizons.
Visitors to Hopi have the op-
portunity to take walking tours
in some of the villages, be
astounded by the beautiful pot-
tery created there, and of course
enjoy meeting kachina doll
carvers practicing their craft.
A bit more than an hours drive
from Flagstaff, Arizona, you
will discover the world of Hopi
situated atop three very high
mesas, and villages that date
back to 1150 AD.
Hopi land covers just over
2,400 sq. miles with a popula-
tion of just under 10,000.
These old villages have mod-
ernized to some degree, but one
village has no electricity or run-
ning water to this day. These
old places are all living villages.
The Hopi are a matrilineal soci-
ety that is organized by clan-
ships. Clan membership estab-
lishes a person’s station and
responsibility to the Hopi socie-
ty, and these relationships are
more significant than blood
If you visit the mesas at the
right time, you might be lucky
enough to see one of the beauti-
ful and colorful social ceremo-
nies in one of the village plazas.
Note: Cameras are not permitted
at Hopi. And absolute respect for
the Hopi culture is a must.)
In all of Native America, noth-
ing compares to Hopi. Indeed,
it can reshape the perspective
on things your see around you
