New York, NY, September 29, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Without books and without writing the Hopi have held onto an extensive collection of folklore. These stories have been collected with the main purpose of preserving the ancient ways of the Native Americans. Both volumes in this set are available in Paperback, and eBook: Volume One ISBN-13: 978-1512176315 (6" x 9" 15.24 x 22.86 cm) 208 pages and Volume 2 ISBN-13: 978-1512176575 (6" x 9" 15.24 x 22.86 cm) 212 pages.
The Hopi Indians culture was and is rich with these stories. With a past stretching back thousands of years, they are one of the oldest living cultures in documented history. The tribe’s teachings relate stories of a great flood and other events dating to ancient times. The Hopi trace their ancestry back to the Ancient Puebloan and Basketmaker cultures. They were responsible for many stone structures and artifacts of the Grand Canyon and across the Southwest. A deeply religious people, they live by the ethic of peace and goodwill.
There was a time in Hopi history that when crops were harvested, religious ceremonies had been performed, and the winter wood had been collected. It was at this time that the people broke out into dance and story-telling. It was a time of sharing a rich history. With this book, that time is now.
