Description

This not only is an excellent introduction to Hopi religion and culture change; it should be considered as a text for any course concerned with Native Americans in the twentieth century. - "American Indian Culture and Research Journal". "An important addition to the literature on Native American religions." - "Choice". In this exploration of twentieth-century Hopi religious history and cultural change, John D. Loftin focuses on the interplay between Hopi myth and history, timelessness and the experience of time, continuity and change. His use of a historical-analytical framework, incorporating the Hopi understanding of myth and prophecy, provides a model of religious change which shows how a Native American people draws on its ancient religious beliefs and practices to come to terms with domination by an alien, Western culture and lifestyle.show more
