Lesson 16: Hopi and Pueblo

Today in class, we will be discussing Hopi and Pueblo societies, cultures, and histories. We will focus on Hopi cultural characteristics and discuss their religion, sociopolitical organization, and settlement among other topics. We are also going to discuss an article by Carol Chiago Lujan about tourism at Taos Pueblo. The central questions are: 1) whether or not tourism is a form of assimilation; 2) how much impact tourism has had on the residents of Taos and their culture; and 3) the relationship between the pueblo and the town.
