Book of the Hopi: The First Revelation of the Hopi Historical and Religious Worldview of Life by Frank Waters

Availability: In stock

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. The Hopi kept this view secret for centuries and anthropologists have long struggled to understand it. Here they record their myths and legends and the meaning of their religious rituals and ceremonies as a gift to future generations. Here is a reassertion of a rhythm of life we have disastrously tried to ignore, and instincts we have tragically repressed; a reminder, too, that we must attune ourselves to the need for inner change if we are to avert a cataclysmic rupture between our minds and hearts. Call for wholesale pricing.

"Deeply steeped in Hopi mysticism...Combine(s) Hopi art, history, tradition, myth, folklore, and ceremonialism with dignity and authority.... Deserves to be part of the library of any student of the American Southwest." --American Anthropologist.
