Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This source represents the efforts of a Native American to record in written for the oral traditions of his people as a means of preserving for future generations some aspects of Hopi culture. Although many of the stories related in the text deal primarily with the origin myths and traditional history of some of the Hopi clans, there is also much substantive information to be found in these pages dealing with cultural contacts, general folk traditions, early migrations, and relations with the U.S. Government. A detailed explanation of the various footnotes found scattered throughout the text will be found at the end of the source (pp. 103-112). These notes provide a wealth of information on various aspects of Hopi culture.
