Hopi Oral Tradition and Resistance to Outside Forces
[ send me this essay ]
An 8 page paper discussing the ease with which the Hopi religion and oral tradition has persisted over the centuries. 'Wrong headedness' is a condition that the Hopi are not to have. They are to adhere to the admonishings and warnings of ages to come given by the ancient ones. Because the oral traditions attached to the Hopi religion are so adaptable to changes in society and in levels of technology, they can remain relevant at any stage of development, either of the Hopi culture or those that would overrun it. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

The Mystique of Turquoise
[ send me this essay ]
An 8 page paper discussing the enduring allure of turquoise. Were we to have a national stone in the US, certainly turquoise would surely be it. It has been used from times of prehistory for trading and as talismans for good health and good fortune; it has fueled the latest craze of all things Southwestern. Stephen Dweck, a modern-day designer, calls turquoise a modern amulet. The Navajo Indians are most noted for their artistry with turquoise, but many of the Native American tribes traded with it and held it dear long before the first white man invaded their lands. Bibliography lists 11 sources.
