Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
Clemmer presents in this book a description of Hopi social
organization, economy, religion, and politics as well as key events in the history of
Hopi-United States relations from the late nineteenth century to the 1990s. The author
notes that despite one hundred years under the dominant American culture, Hopi society
today (the 1990s) maintains cultural continuity with its aboriginal roots, while reflecting
the effects of the twentieth century. This work focuses "…on six major events in Hopi
history: a factionalist schism that split the largest Hopi village, Oraibi, into three
villages; the impact of the federal Indian Reorganization Act of 1934; the rise of a
political movement known as 'traditionalism' the story behind far-reaching oil and coal
leases in the 1960s; the Hopi-Navajo land dispute; and the disappearance of ceremonial
objects into private collections and museums" (p. 354).
