Spotlight on Native Americans

The Hopi settlement of Oraibi in Arizona is the oldest surviving Native American settlement in the United States. Today, the vibrant traditions of the Hopi people are still celebrated on the desert mesas that the Hopi Nation calls home. This book presents the endurance of the Hopi people, casting a spotlight on their historical milestones, such as battles with the Spanish in the 1600s, to the modern-day trials of balancing tradition against tourism and other economic factors. The unique culture of the Hopi has been shaped over the years by their artwork, architecture, and ceremonies. Now, readers are invited into this world, to explore detailed photographs, maps, and illustrations that bring Hopi history to life.
