Description

The work "Hopi" comes from Hopituh, meaning those who live according to the way of the Hopi. For millennia, the Hopi people have lived in the great deserts of the Southwestern United States. From the Hopi people of Third Mesa, accomplished singer Clark Tenakhongva’s songs capture the gentle Hopi way of life. Prayers of rain, thanksgiving, life’s beauty and the harmony of all peoples, these songs accompany the social and ceremonial dances that have enriched the Hopi people for centuries. His evocative, original songs reflect the ancient Hopi vision of life as it continues to endure in the modern world.
