The Hopi are a Native American tribe who primarily live on the Hopi Reservation in northeastern Arizona. The Hopi encountered Spaniards in the 16th century, and are historically referred to as Pueblo people, because they lived in villages (pueblos in the Spanish language).
Over centuries of a stable existence based on farming, they. evolved an extremely rich ceremonial life. The Hopi Way, whose purpose is to maintain a balance between nature and people in every. aspect of life, is ensured by the celebration of their ceremonies.
The precise origin of the Hopi is unknown, although it is thought that they and other Pueblo peoples descended from the Ancestral Pueblo (Anasazi), whom the Hopi call Hisatsinom, “Ancient People.” Archaeology has revealed that some abandoned pueblos, such as Sikyatki and Awatovi, were once occupied by Hopi people.
