NATIVE AMERICAN / SPIRITUALITY
This is a story of creation and change, of prophecy and fulfillment in the world we all journey through--a world the Hopi call koyaanisqatsi, or “world out of balance.” A heartfelt and reverential view of the Hopi Way as seen by one of the few white men to have lived within this ancient culture, Meditations With The Hopi imparts to us the essence of the Hopi experience--from child’s first cry to soul’s departure, each transition celebrated in song and ritual.
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
