The Secrets of the Hopi

"Road of Life"

In this strange and wonderful book, thirty elders of the ancient Hopi tribe of Northern Arizona - A people who regard themselves as the first inhabitants of Arizona - freely reveal the Hopi worldview for the first time in written form. The Hopi kept this view a secret for countless centuries, and anthropologists have long struggled to understand it. Now they record their myths and legends, and the meaning of their religious rituals and ceremonies, as a gift to future generations. Here is a reassertion of a rhythm of life we have disastrously tired to ignore and instincts we have tragically repressed; and a reminder that we must attune ourselves to the need for inner change if we are to avert a cataclysmic rupture between our minds and hearts.

"Deeply steeped in Hopi mysticism...Combine(s) Hopi art,

history, tradition, myth, folklore, and ceremonialism with dignity

and authority...Deserves to be part of the library of any

student of the American Southwest."
