HERE IS THE ASSIGNMENT READ THIS CAREFULLY

To access the Hopi Indian Website:

2) Click on English

3) Click on Resources

4) Click on Supawlavi Village, Hopi Nation

5) You will find a number of topics there such as

a)Supawlavi Village, Hopi Nation Resources
Hopi Nation Site

c) Tutuveni
Newspaper of the Hopi Nation
http://www.hopi.nsn.us/Pages/Tutuveni/tut%20intro.html

and more....

Go through the entire website. The aim of this reading is to convey a Hopi sense of place as an integral system engaging myth and legend, oral tradition, place names, cultural practices, and society’s interconnection with the environment. The Hopi sense of place is distinct and different from our sense. Your task is to grasp the Hopi approach as a distinct human-environment system. Use the first two essays as a guide to write a cultural geography of Hopi Land.

You are free to use any website/ book/ article/ encyclopedia you want to as a source for your essay. The sites I provided are only a guide
