In this classic work, renowned anthropologist Mischa Titiev presents his research on the Hopi Native-Americans. Based on fieldwork he did in period 1932 -1940, he describes many aspects of the Hopi culture, from land use and kinship to ceremonies and games. Illustrated THE HOPI Indians, a tribe speaking a Shoshonean language, are located in the Little Colorado drainage, about 70 miles north of Winslow, Arizona. They are the westernmost representatives of the Pueblo pattern of culture, and archaeological evidence has indicated that they are probably the direct descendants of some of the earliest tribes which settled in the Southwest. Owing in part to geographical isolation, and in part to their stubborn resistance to outside influences, the Hopi have managed to preserve so great a part of their aboriginal culture that they afford a particularly attractive subject for ethnological investigation.
