About this Item: Dover Publications, Inc., Mineola, New York, 1985. Trade Paperback. Condition: Near Fine. Kennedy, Paul F. - Cover Design (illustrator). Firste Dover Edition. 144 Pages Indexed. Tight square book with no marks or stamps. Interior text and illustration pagges are flawless. This Dover edition, first published in 1985, is an unabridged re-publication of the work first published by the Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C., in 1903 as a paper contained in the Twenty- First Annual Report of the Bureau of American Ethnology to the Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution, 1899-1900. The plates appeared in color in the original edition. The index in the present volume is adapted from that of the original edition, which covered all papers in the Report. Amid the austere beauty of the Painted Desert in Arizona, the Hopi Indians developed a rich culture and created elaborate, colorful and exciting artifacts known as katcinas-masked symbolic representations of gods and departed clan-ancestors. 260 individual katcina figures on 62 black-and-white plates are reproduced here from original paintings made by native artists. Made to illustrate Hopi god symbols, they demonstrate a sophisticated and highly developed artistic ability. The author supplies an illuminating text, examining the Hopi calendar, festivals and ceremonies, while detailed descriptions of the pictures shed light on how Hopi artists used objective forms to represent spirits. The remarkable dolls and masks allow us a glimpse of how intricately Hopi religion was woven into the tribe's social fabric. Anthropologists, sociologists, historians, teachers and anyone interested in American Indians will find this book an indispensable reference and a valuable study of a disappearing culture that contributed significantly to America's heritage.
