Hopi Festival - Museum of Northern Arizona - Entrance

I stopped at the Hopi Festival at the Museum of Northern Arizona in Flagstaff on my way home from a backpacking trip. This is the entrance sign. The Museum also holds festivals for Zuni, Navajo, and La Gente.

Great Native American food, arts, crafts, performances and seminars. Some of the best sweet corn and Fry Bread you will find anywhere.

The Hopi Way of Life

by Hopi preservationist Donald Dawahongnewa

Dawahongnewa has dedicated himself to preserving the Hopi culture. He works in the Hopi Cultural Preservation Office and is a member of important religious societies. He says it is not always easy to follow the traditions and he insists on using the Hopi language in ceremonies. He also says that Hopi should always be balanced and that everyone should be living in harmony. That is the Hopi way.
