The Hopi is a children's information book published by The Children's Press. It is part of the True Book series about Native Americans designed to introduce young students to the culture and history of a specific Native group. This book begins with a basic introduction about origin and geographic location of the Hopi who have resided in the desert lands of the American Southwest for generations. Their reservation is located in northeastern Arizona and the geographic region receives little rain. Their traditional homes located in villages on the top of mesas are made from clay and stone that are several stories high. Old Oraibi is the oldest village in North America. In five brief chapters, the author describes the unique cultural traditions of the Hopi including their foods and agriculture, family life, kinship and clans, men's and women's roles, and religious ceremonies. The two remaining chapters briefly describe the impact of the coming of the Spanish and later the American soldiers and government. Their reservation was created by the U. S. government in 1882. But unfortunately, the land was located in the middle of the larger Navajo reservation. The final chapter explains in text and images how Hopi people live today. Despite the desert-like conditions, the Hopi still farm, their children attend reservation schools, and the villages are connected to the mainstream culture of America. This book and the entire series approach the content from the outside and never really bring the voices of Native Americans to the reader. Despite this, these titles offer students in grades three to five an opportunity to have reasonable resources about Aboriginal Peoples. Each title contains a glossary, index, map, a brief list of books and websites for more research, and special one-page explanations of important people and other cultural traditions. In this book on the Hopi, the author includes information about Olympic distance runner, Louis Tewanima, Kachinas, and pottery.
