Hopilavayvenpi: Tutuvenit ang kuwanlewita’a. Hopi Alphabet: Color The Pages.
Mesa Media’s Hopi coloring book is yet another way to master Hopilavayvenpi, the Hopi alphabet. Use it in your classroom while playing our Hopilavayvenpi CD.
In 2013, Mesa Media produced a bilingual booklet and audio CD to introduce the Hopi alphabet (available at www.mesamedia.org). This CD and booklet help Hopi speakers learn the Hopi alphabet by going through each Hopi character in detail. We give example sentences and pronunciation can be mastered using the audio CD. The coloring book expands on the Alphabet CD and creates a more interactive method of learning the characters of the Hopi alphabet.
