Summary
"This book takes readers to a Hopi Indian village on a mesa in Northeastern Arizona to watch a ceremonial Kachina year through the eyes of two Hopi children, Hester, nine, and Honu, seven. From the time the first Kachina appears in December until the Niman in July when the Kachinas go home, the children experience the magic and beauty of plaza dances. They learn that Kachinas are messenger spirits essential for Hopi survival, for they bring rain to the arid land so crops will grow. During the ceremonial year, the children are taught important lessons to live 'The Hopi Way.'"-- P. [4] of cover
