Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This paper examines some of the assumptions that have been made regarding female reproduction, separation of the sexes, and the position of women in Hopi society (p. 245). The document discusses "…the separation of activity between the domestic organization of the lineage and household under the control of a female head, and the religious and political organization of the village, under the control of male community leaders" (p. 246). Also described in the text is the position of the clan midway between household and community, in which authority is shared between a brother and sister pair, the concept of sexual interdependence between males and females, and principles of maleness and femaleness in Hopi ideology.
