About the Author:

Don C. Talayesva (1890–1985) was born and raised in the Hopi village of Old Oraibi until the age of ten. He then spent nearly ten years training at white government schools. At the age of twenty, Talayesva returned to Hopiland and readopted Hopi tribal customs. Leo W. Simmons was a Yale anthropologist who recorded Talayesva’s autobiography. Matthew Sakiestewa Gilbert is associate professor of American Indian studies and history at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and enrolled with the Hopi Tribe. Robert V. Hine is professor emeritus of history at the University of California, Riverside.

Review:

Sun Chief is one of the great ethnographic autobiographies of Native American studies. Don Talayesva’s story is dramatic, humorous and insightful. This second edition contains a foreword written by Hopi scholar, Matthew Sakiestewa Gilbert, known for his excellent historical work on Hopi culture and education. He situates Sun Chief in the context of Hopi and white interaction and conflict, and raises important issues from a Hopi perspective.”―Armin W. Geertz, Aarhus University (Armin W. Geertz)

“Sun Chief is a seminal contribution to Hopi studies.  It has and continues to inform and inspire today’s emerging Hopi scholars who can expand on its relevancy to critical issues and events in contemporary Hopi society. More importantly, Gilbert points out that the field will benefit from “a new direction” in the developing scholarship that promises to forefront the Hopi view, experience and voice.”―Sheilah Nicholas (Hopi), University of Arizona (Sheilah Nicholas)

"This is an indispensable new edition of the classic Hopi autobiography. Matthew Sakiestewa Gilbert’s foreword brilliantly situates Talayesva’s story in scholarly as well as Hopi contexts, providing fresh insights into the achievements and limitations of the text―and of Hopi scholarship since its publication."―Tisa Wenger, author of We Have a Religion: The 1920s Pueblo Indian Dance Controversy and American Religious Freedom. (Tisa Wenger)

“Don Talayesva’s Sun Chief remains one of the most remarkable “as-told-to” Native autobiographies: an incisive (self-)portrait of early 20th century Hopi life. Matt Sakiestewa Gilbert’s critically-nuanced foreword sensitively reinscribes the text within and against an emerging canon of autochthonous Hopi scholarship.”―Peter M. Whiteley, Curator of North American Ethnology, American Museum of Natural History (Peter M. Whiteley)

"In sharp and wonderful ways, Matthew Sakiestewa Gilbert's new foreword provides a fresh perspective on how Hopi people regard this classic autobiography. His compassionate but critical reading of a fellow Hopi writer's work is eminently teachable and deeply thoughtful."― Robert Warrior (Osage), author of The People and the Word: Reading Native Nonfiction and Tribal Secrets: Recovering American Indian Intellectual Traditions (Robert Warrior)
