Praise for Meditations With The Hopi

“I believe that Robert’s writings give a true meaning of the way Hopis feel, think, and act at Shipaulovi. I think that his books are historically important for the village.”
--Ferrell Secakuku, Second Mesa, Shipaulovi Village

“He has been a friend, an uncle, and a brother of my family and me as long as I can remember . . . a true friend of the Hopi people. I am hopeful that this book will bring a closer and better understanding of Hopi by all mankind.”
--Walter Koyawena, Second Mesa, Shipaulovi Village
