The Hopi tribe made many crafts. They made baskets, cloths, and jewelry. The men made the cloths for there family. Women also made pottery.
The Hopi have many religious ceremonies. They had a under ground religious room called a kiva to hold service, just like their cousins the Anasazi. They also had dolls called Kachinas to teach the children about each spirit’s powers. These dolls were not for playing they were for learning. Sometimes the Hopi would even have a sacred dance that was supposed to have made the rain come.
After the Navajo came in contact with the Pueblo people, they began to make pottery and weave rugs, blankets and other items. The men were great silver men, usually making jewelry.
When the Navajos -or dine as they called themselves - needed healing they called upon a medicine man- they called him a singer. The singer would make a mixture out of pollen, cornmeal, ground charcoal, and colorful powdered minerals. Then they would use the mixture to make a religious painting. Then the singer would make the ill villager sit on the painting so the gods could heal him. When the service was over they’d destroy the painting.
