Heinrich Voth, the Mennonite missionary who spent almost 10
years among the Hopi and who spoke the Hopi language fluently, compiled this collection of
myths, historical traditions, and stories. Most of the tales were collected at Oraibi
although there are some from Shipaulovi, and a few from Mishongnovi. Since Voth gives no
commentary, there is no indication how the Hopi classified these tales. Following the
complete texts, Voth gives abstracts of each tale. In footnotes, Voth gives the name and
village of each story-teller.
