This source presents a detailed study of the Hopi clan
system based on the data collected by the author in the summer of 1915 at First Mesa on
the Hopi Reservation (villages of Walpi and Sichumovi), and further supplemented in 1916
with additional comparative information from Second Mesa (villages of Mishongnovi and
Shipaulovi). In each of the villages studied the author instituted his own census to
determine the numerical size of the clans, the relationship of clan members to one
another, and the degree to which clan intermarriages have taken place. The data from
this census occupy a large portion of this work. Following this, additional information
will be found on linked clans, totemism, political clan functions, and the role of clans
and ceremonial associations in the society. An appendix contains a number of kinship
charts showing actual blood relationships within the various clans mentioned in the
