Hopi Native American Indians
Transcript of Hopi Native American Indians
The Home of Hopi Indians
The Hopi are a Native American tribe, who primarily live on the Hopi Reservation in northeastern Arizona. Arizona is in the Southwestern United States.
Hopi Indians and the Environment
The Hopis used their environment around them to make resources they needed...
The Hopis were expert farming people. They planted crops of corn, beans, and squash, as well as cotton and tobacco, and raised turkeys for their meat. Hopi men also hunted deer, antelope, and small game, while women gathered nuts, fruits, and herbs.
Hopi Indians are the westernmost of the Pueblo Indian tribes. "Hopi" is a shortened form of the original term Hopituh-Shi-nu-mu, which means "peaceful people." According to the 2010 census, there were 19,327 Hopi in the United States.

The Hopis clothing is Mantas, breechcloth, kilts, leggings, sandals, and moccasins. The Hopi clothes were made out of cotton they grew themselves. Women wore mantas which were black cotton blankets wrapped around, fastened together on their shoulder, and tied with a sash at their waist. Men wore breechcloths or kilts.
The Hopis shelter is the Adobe houses and Ariluna houses. Both types of homes were made out of the same things, such as straw and hardened mud. The Ariluna homes were an apartment-like shelter. They all lived in large villages.
Hopi women have traditionally followed the art of basket weaving and the women of the Second and Third Mesa still produce the most valued basket art. Like their pottery objects, baskets were made to serve a purpose. Some were used for daily life, while the most special held ceremony corn or corn pollen for sacred Hopi rituals.
There are now Hopi Museums and research centers such as:
