The gardeners and gatherers of the southwest

The Hopi are much like the Pueblos

They are known as the peaceful of all people

The Hopi girls are taught early to bake bread

And they believe that if the girls can not make piki they are not ready for marriage.


  • In the Hopi society the men choose their wife. One of the rules that they must follow by is that you can not marry within the same clan. When the husband or wife were married the only time they would wear their wedding clothes would be when they are being buried in the sitting position with their head between their legs.


  • Their clothes are much like the Navajo. They lived in warm climate so the women wore a blanket called a manta. The men wore loose pants and a loose shirt. In the winter everyone wore blankets made of rabbit skin. They also wore leggings and moccasins.

  • The women owned the homes. The uncle normally raised her children instead of the father. The father was in charge of raising his sisters kids and were responsible for the mothers home as well as the sisters.


  • One of the biggest parts of the Hopi religion is the Kachina gods. The Kachina was the rain gods. They believe that one of the Kachina is a spider women. Who they believe wove the clouds. During the ceremonies the men dressed up as the Kachina and danced in the plazas.


  • The snake ceremony is the most famous of all. Then men gathered Kiva and collect snakes. The men would wash the snakes. Then after this they prayed for four days. When they were done they came out with a snake in their mouth. Then they would dance with the snake in their mouth and release them as messengers to the rain gods.


  • Hopi Indian Prayer

  • Do not stand at my grave and weep.  I am not there, I do not sleep.I am a thousand winds that blow.  I am the diamond glint on snow.I am the sunlight on the ripened grain.  I am the gentle Autumn's rain.

  • When you awaken in the morning hush,  I am the swift uplifting rush   of quiet birds in circled flight,I am the soft stars that shine at night.

  • Do not stand at my grave and cry:  I am not there, I did not die


  • The Hopi and Pueblos live in Pueblos that are made of stone and mud. They are built at a high level. They had ladders leading to the upper level.

  • The kivas are underground and they use them for religious reasons. In this there is a fire pit in the middle of the floor.


  • Arrowheads, knives, scrapers, are made of cryptocrystalline rocks. They used these tools to process corn and seed.

  • Pottery jars and bowls were manufactured for cooking, storing food and water

  • Cotton and hides were used for clothing

  • Baskets made of reed and yucca fiber were used for both winnowing and carrying.

  • Common tool was bone awl for weaving baskets.

  • Sample- Translation Our father, which art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory for ever and ever.
