Native american-ppt-hopi[1] Native american-ppt-hopi[1] Presentation Transcript

  • Hopi
  • The Hopi Indians live in the Southwestern part of the United States, in the present day states of Arizona and New Mexico .
  • The land that they lived on was a low, flat desert with some high plateaus called mesas.
  • The climate was very dry, so dry that few trees grew there. It could get very hot in the daytime and very cold at night.
  • Even though it was difficult, the Hopi were farmers. They used irrigation to water their crops of beans, corn and squash.
  • They also raised sheep for meat and wool.
  • The Hopi had no method of transportation other than walking.
  • The built and lived in homes called pueblos. Pueblos were made of adobe, which is a mixture of straw, clay and water. The doors to their pueblo was so high that you needed a ladder to get into the house!
  • The Hopi made their clothes from cotton and wool. They were expert weavers.
  • They also made beautiful pottery.
  • The Hopi were also skilled at making jewelry. They used shells, beads, and a beautiful stone called turquoise. Later the Spanish taught them how to work with silver.
  • The Hopi were very religious and held special ceremonies in an underground circular room called a kiva.
  • They believed in over 300 different strong spirits that control nature called Kachinas. They carved Kachina dolls to teach their children the names and powers of the different spirits.
