Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
Drawing on oral accounts from Hopi informants and on
contemporary (1980s) documents, Whiteley's focus in this book is on the Oraibi split of
1906 in which "traditional" Hopis separated themselves from "progressives" establishing in
turn the new settlements of Hotevilla, and later Bacavi. The author argues that the split
was in fact the result of a conspiracy among Hopi politico-religious leaders from both
factions to overturn the allegedly corrupt Oraibi religious order. Using as an example the
settlement of Bacavi, Whiteley's analysis of the social structure seems to demonstate "…how
one fragment of a well-established society went about creating a new social order after the
old one drastically fragmented" (overleaf).
