The Cosmology of the Hopi Tribe of Arizona

Dr. Bernardini discusses the cosmology of the Hopi Tribe, the iconic pueblo group of the American Southwest. Although often romanticized as “timeless” Indians, the history of the Hopi people is actually full of dynamic change including previous worlds, migrations, gatherings and dispersals of people, a search for the center place, and struggles to fulfill sacred compacts. From the Hopi perspective, there is no one point in history when they “became Hopi” and then persisted unchanged through the centuries. Hopi, in this view, is a philosophy, an aspiration. One is always in the process of becoming Hopi – of striving to live by the standards of hopìiqatsi, the Hopi way of life.

Bio

Wesley Bernardini is a professor in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at the University of Redlands in California. He has conducted collaborative research with the Hopi Tribe since 1997. He is the author of numerous articles and three books, including Becoming Hopi (2021). He is the only scholar to have been awarded both the Dissertation Prize (in 2003) and the Scholarly Book Award (in 2022) from the Society for American Archaeology.
