Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This detailed study of the Hopi social organization is an excerpt from a larger comparative study of the social organization of the Western Pueblos. Data from different villages, notably from First, Second, and Third Mesas comprize an overall picture of integrated Hopi patterns including archaeological and historical material. The nature of the integrations of major organizations such as: kinship, kin groups, community, extended family household, kiva groupings, and ceremonial organization, is structurally examined. The source presents associated theoretical problems and hypotheses on social and cultural change.
