Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
The major aim of this work is to examine social
stratification among the Hopi, first by viewing it as a source of internal contradiction in
the society, and then by evaluating its role in the disintegration of the village of Oraibi
(Orayvi) during the early years of the twentieth century. Levy then proceeds to reexamine
Hopi social organization in an attempt to clarify certain aspects of its structure which
have caused confusion to ethnologists in the past; "…provide a more comprehensive
understanding of the Oyayvi split and its causes, including an integration of Hopi and
anthropologists' explanation; and answer some questions arising from generalizations
scholars have formulated about the nature of Hopi society and culture, namely that Hopi
social organization was unstable and not fully integrated" (p. 155).
