Tsangaw uma öki. Itam haalaytoti. We Are Glad You Are Here. A Handbook of Secular Hopi Teachings for Teachers and Professionals.
This handbook is a guide for newcomers to Hopi. It will help new teachers and visitors to better understand Hopi culture and traditions. It provides information to avoid embarrassing situations. One need is for educators to understand the linguistic and cultural environment that their students come from. It turns out that student academic achievements are a direct result of how students use or do not use their heritage language and culture.
This handbook provides insight into many Hopi topics including: Hopi customs, superstitions, language, numbers, counting, colors, games, recipes, songs, clans and familial relationships.
