Map  of  where  Hopi  lived.


The  Hopi  believed  it  was  their  destiny  to  live  in  the  desert,  and  because  
they  were  religious  they  thought  the  gods  wanted  them  to  live  in  the  desert,  
so  they  lived  there.  They  lived  in  what  now  is  called  the  four  corners,  which  
is  the  meeting  of  4  states  that  form  corners,  the  4  states  are  Arizona,  New  
Mexico,  Colorado,  and  Utah.  



 The  climate  was  very  dry  and  hot  in  the  desert,  which  didn’t  help  the  Hopis  

case,  so  they  used  washes  to  get  water.  They  did  get  the  sun  so  the  crops  

could  grow,  and  they  used  the  corn  to  make  some  bread  sometimes.  It  did  

rain  occasionally  which  helped  out  the  crops  a  lot.

This  a  spirit  eagle  they  use  
it  for  religious  ceremonies  and  it  means  strong  power.  
The  Hopi  believed  in  many  gods  and  spirits    





               ​Hopi’s  protectors  
The  kachinas  were  powerful  spirits  they  
believed  in.  Kachinas  are  spirits  not  gods.”The  
hopi  believed  that  they  came  every  year”says  
the  author  of  the  book  ​If  You  Lived  With  The  
Hopi.​The  hopi  believed  that  kachinas  had  good  
hearts  like  they  did  good  not  bad  deeds.

(This  is  a  picture  of  a  mini  statue  kachina.)

If You Were Bad

Learn about the ogre kachina

If  you  did  bad  deeds  a  ogre  kachina  will  go  to  
your  house  and  would  want  to  eat  you  and  they  
come  once  a  year  knocking  on  your  door  asking  
for  the  child.Your  parents  would  try  to  defend  
you  by  saying  the  good  deeds  you  did  like  if  
helped  with  farming  and  other  families.The  
parents  would  offer  rabbit  meat  to  the  ogre  
kachina.Finally  they  would  tell  that  other  

Families  child  bad  deeds.    

                                                                               (this  is  a  ogre  kachina)  





Naming ceremony

When  you  first  born  you  will  get  the  first  name.  
Different  times  of  your  life  you  get  a  another  
but  if    you're  in  the  water  clan  your  name  will  be  
Batoti.  Another  name  you  get  is  Hontoechi  from  
the  bear  clan.Finally  when  you’re  adult  you  get  
name  that  will  stick  forever.So  the  age  of  7  you  
get  a  new  name.  



Tawa  is  well  a  sun  god  that  is  part  of  the  naming  
ceremony  that  you  will  go  to  at  age  19  days  
when  you  were  first  born.You’re  grandma  was  
the  one  that  presented  you.You  were  presented  
outside  at  sunset  while  your  grandma  presented  
you  and  your  family  watched  you  being  



The  Hopi  believed  in  many  gods  and  spirits.The  
first  god  they  believed  in  was  the  Sosqtuknang.  
The  second  god  is  Kokyang  Wuuti  also  known  
as  Spider  Woman.  The  final  god  is  Tawa  the  sun  
god  that  you’re  presented  to.  Hopi  believe  that  
these  gods  created  the  first  human.  
Hopi  thought  that  if  they  did  good  things  and  
were  nice,  they  would  get  prizes/rewards,  but  if  
they  didn’t  do  nice  deeds,  no  rewards  for  the  
village  or  families.  One  of  the  rewards  is  days  of  
rain  to  help  crops  grow.  The  second  reward  they  
would  get  if  they  were  good  is  the  village’s  
crops  wouldn’t  get  damaged.  The  final  reward  is  
good  things  happening  in  their  families’  lives.  

crops  wouldn’t  get  damaged.  The  final  reward  is  
good  things  happening  in  their  families’  lives.  


The  Hopi  tribe  believed  that  if  you  had  a  good  
heart  it  means  you’re  strong​  a​ nd  helpful  you  
would  also  be  able  to  go  to  religious  
ceremonies.If  you  had  sad  thoughts  you  were  
not  allowed  to  enter  religious  ceremonies.So  if  
you  thought  about  somone  who  died  or  if  you  
got  divorced  you  wont  be  able  to  join  the  


The  hopi  would  send  young  children  up  to  ages  
of  5  or  7.  To  climb  down  the  mesa  and  find  a  
eagle  nest.  After  the  Hopi  child  found  the  nest  
he  would  take  the  baby  eagle  then  go  back  to  the  
village.When  the  Hopi  child  got  to  the  village  
the  Hopi  tribe  probably  trained  the  eagle  till  the  
eagle  became  fully  grown.  When  the  bird  
became  fully  grown  the  Hopi  people  would  tie  

the  bird  on  the  roof.  The  reason  why  the  Hopi  
would  do  this  is  because  they  believed  that  the  
would  protect  them.  Another  thing  the  Hopi  
believed  about  the  bird  is  it  means  strong  power  
it  was  strong,  would  send  a  message  to  the  gods.  



These  are  the  things  the  Hopi  believed  in.I  
hoped  you  learned  anything  new.    





  Hopi  Achievements  

By  Neveaha  Benoit  


This is a Hopi house.

The  Hopi  had  to  do  many  things  to  live  in  the  desert.  Some  of  the  things  the  Hopi  had  to  do  
were  build  a  house  for  shelter,  grow  corn  for  food,  and  find  water  and  salt  to  stay  alive.  

The  Hopi  House    



Many relatives would live in the Hopi house. The people who
lived in the house would be your sister and your brother ,
mom , dad. If there were too many people​ t​ hey would not kick
them out, they would build more to the house. Since there
were so many people in your house there could be up to five



All about corn  

T​ his is what the Hopi These are the corns
made the Hopi would eat
The Hopi made many things and how they would
with corn like cornbread and dry it
which was a bread made
from cornmeal. The Hopi They ate corn almost every
would also make soups, day. The Hopi ate yellow ,
porridges, dumplings and even white , blue , speckled and
snacks and desserts all out even red corn.The Hopi would
of corn.   set corn on their roofs for
many months to dry the
corn. Dry corn would last for



The Hopi did not have any rivers or lakes near them. But the
Hopi did have springs. The springs were at the bottom of the
mesa, where the Hopi lived. If it ever snowed or even rained

the mesa would act like a sponge and soak up all of the






Once a year the Hopi men would go on a dangerous trip. The
Hopi would travel until they reached the Grand Canyon.That
was where the men would gather salt that was needed for
cooking. The Hopi could run fast, so it was quicker to get to
the Grand canyon if they ran! But they could not always run,
so if they did not then it could take up to weeks or
sometimes even longer especially if they would not run.The
salt was so important because the Hopi used it in many of
the food they would cook.



The  Hopi  and  Pueblo  Revolt  of  1680    

By:  Micah  Simmons        



 In  1680,  Pueblo  and  Hopi  Tribes  attacked  the  Spanish,  lead  by  the  main  

leader  of  the  revolt,  Popay.  The  Spanish  were  taking  over  Pueblan  and  

Hopi  tribe’s  land.  They  had  to  do  something  about  the  Spanish.  

This  is  a  picture  of  the  revolt.  



The  Spanish  and  the  Hopi    

                 Spanish  took  over  Hopi  land  and  built  Catholic  churches  to  try  to  get  
Hopi  to  convert  religions.  Hopi  village  leaders  wanted  to  get  rid  of  the  
Spanish  priests  and  warriors  in  their  village.  Then  the  Hopi  heard  there    
would  be  an  ​uprising ​  against  the  Spanish.  Eastern  Pueblo  Tribes  were  
plotting  the  uprising.  The  Hopi  sent  people  to  meet  with  the  leader,  Popay  
and  other  Pueblo  tribes.  Popay  was  a  prisoner  of  the  Spanish  for  a  little  bit  
and  was  released  and  he  was  angry  and  so  he  plotted  the  attack  against  
the  Spanish.  


This  is  a  Spanish  Catholic  church

Uprising:​  an  act  of  rebellion;;  resistance  
Sentence:  The  Danish  Resistance  was  a  group  
of  young  people  who  had  an  u​ prising ​  against  the  Nazi  (German  Soldiers).  


This  is  a  statue  of  Popay  in  Washington  D.C.  

 Popay  and  the  Revolt  

Popay  gave  each  tribe  a  rope  that  had  knots  on  it,  and  each  day  they  were  
supposed  to  unravel  a  knot.  When  the  last  knot  was  unraveled  that  is  the  
day  they  would  attack.  The  day  was  set  for  August  10th,  1680.  But  a  
Pueblan  traitor  let  the  Spanish  know  ahead  of  time  about  the  revolt.  It  was  
sad,  but  the  Spanish  took  two  Indian  youth  and  tortured  them  to  get  some  
more  information  about  the  revolt.  Popay  found  out  about  the  traitor  and  he  
was  mad,  so  he  had  no  other  choice  but  to  switch  the  date  to  a  day  earlier.  
So  he  had  representatives  that  could  run  fast  go  to  every  pueblan  tribe  that  

 was  participating  in  the  revolt  and  tell  them  that  it  was  a  day  earlier.  

Popay’s  Revolt  was  Successful    

The  Pueblan  tribes  drove  the  Spanish  into  Mexico  and  

won  the  war  between  the  Pueblan  tribes  and  the  Spanish.  

It  took  around  a  couple  of  days  of  war  but  the  Pueblan  

tribes  won  and  the  Spanish  didn’t  come  back.  The  

Pueblan  tribes  were  finally  free.  The  Pueblan  tribes  

destroyed  400  Spanish  and  killed  ⅔  of  the  priests  in  that  

region.  They  ran  2,500  Spanish  warriors  out  of  their  land.  

The  Pueblan  Revolt  was  very  successful.  


Hopi  had  their  own  Revolt  

       The  Hopi  never  found  out  there  had  been  a  day  switch    
and  so  they  didn’t  get  to  participate  in  the  main  revolt  led  by  Popay.  
   Meanwhile,  in  the  Hopi  tribe's  area  still  had  Spanish  there.  So  two  days  
after  the  main  revolt  they  had  their  own  revolt  and  brought  down  Spanish  
churches  and  The  Hopi  stole  and  broke  the  church  memorabilia  and  buried  
the  church  bells.  After  the  revolt,  the  Hopi  spread  the  livestock  among  the  
Hopi  clans.  

                                                         This  is  a  Spanish  church  bell.    



The  Hopi  thought  the  Spanish  were  
going  to  Punish  them  

The  Hopi  were  worried  the  Spanish  were  going  to  come  back  and  attack  
them,  so  because  of  the  worries,  they  moved  on  top  of  the  Mesas.  The  plan  
worked,  the  Spanish  did  try  to  attack  them,  but  they  couldn’t  get  to  the  
Hopi.  This  would  help  them  because  they  needed  to  get  away  from  the  

This  is  a  Hopi  village  on  a  mesa.  


The  Spanish  King  let  the  Hopi  Have  
their  own  land  

The  Spanish  King  let  the  Hopi  and  Eastern  Pueblan  tribes  have  their  own  

space.  Which  mean  the  Hopi  were  free  from  the  Spanish  after  lots  of  

time.Today  this  space/land  is  called  a  reservation.  








The  Hopi  Today      

Now  the  Hopi  do  not  live  as  their  ancestors  lived.  They  do  make  pretty  

jewelry  still.  Lots  of  Hopi  live  in  houses  we  would  live  in.  And  Hopi  kids  go  

to  regular  schools  that  we  go  to.    




This is the hopi house ( above )

The Hopi House:

The women owned the house so men moved in with the
women. The house was filled with 10 to 20 relatives
that lived in your house. If your house got too crowded,
the females would build on to the house with clay and
wood logs.

Men vs Women:

Did all the cooking, they had to dry the corn, the g​ irls
had to learn how to repair the walls.

Had to learn how to make pottery, and you had to learn
to grind dry corn and you would sing while you worked.

Did all the farming (grew the food) and they sewed, had
to chase the crows and kill rodents.

You would have to learn to farm, and had to spin cotton
and sew clothing also learn to hunt while using a bow
and arrow.


If you were a kid you would play field hockey ,archery,
darts, ball games (games like soccer) but they were not

Clan/Family life:

The clan was all relatives
Of your mother(​ n​ gú u)​, your Aunts and sisters helped
raise you and your siblings. Your clan (somewhat)
banner for each clan was different (like snake and bear
clan). When the kids grew up they had to marry
somebody from the other clan, Each clan had its own
religious ceremonies. Every clan had its own special

Once you were born you received your first name, then
when you turned 6 years old you got got a brand new
first name. You never got your last name till you pasted
away or died.

Everyone in your clan wore leggings in the cold.
If you were a girl you wore a black dress called a ​manta.
Children wore the same type of clothing as adults.
