Hopi Oral Tradition and the Archaeology of IdentityBook - 2005
Drawing on Hopi traditional knowledge, the author shows how hypotheses that are developed from oral tradition can stimulate new and productive ways to think about the archaeological record. Focusing on insights that oral tradition has to offer about general processes of prehistoric migration and identity formation, he describes how each Hopi clan acquired its particular identity from the experiences it accumulated on its unique migration pathway.
