The Hopi are a Native American tribe, who primarily live on the 2,531.773 sq miles Hopi Reservation in northeastern Arizona.
The Hopi language is one of the 30 of the Uto-Aztecan language family. The majority of Hopi people are enrolled in the Hopi Tribe of Arizona but some are enrolled in the Colorado River Indian Tribes.
When first encountered by the Spanish in the 16th century, the Hopi and the surrounding cultures were referred to as Pueblo people, because they lived in villages (pueblos in the Spanish language).
The Hopi are descended from the Ancient Pueblo Peoples (Hopi: Hisatsinom or Navajo: Anasazi) who constructed large apartment-house complexes in northeastern Arizona, northwestern New Mexico, and southwestern Colorado.
They lived along the Mogollon Rim, especially from the 12th–14th century, when they abandoned their large villages.
The name Hopi is a shortened form of their autonym, Hopituh Shi-nu-mu
(“The Peaceful People” or “Peaceful Little Ones“).
If you are one of the many,
dredging souls in the workforce,
Too scared to rage against the Machine,
And thence you toil for the Machine,
Today is funny-clothing day!
Or, you may call in sick,
To spend the day obsessing
over perceived slights
