Welcome to Mesa Media
Mesa Media fulfills our mission to revitalize Hopi language by creating Hopi language materials by Hopi people for Hopi people. We are a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt Hopi organization.
Mesa Media specializes in producing culturally-relevant, multimedia materials such as CDs, DVDs, books, posters and apps. Our work promotes Hopi fluency and preservation of Hopi cultural teachings.
For a person in danger of dying,
the first job of medics is to get the heart beating again. For an endangered language,
the first job is to get the native speakers speaking again.
-Leanne Hinton, from “The Green Book of Language Revitalization in Practice,” ed. with Ken Hale (Academic Press, 2001).
