This second book in the series My World: Young Native Americans Today tells the story of Mindy, a Hopi and Tewa girl from the Southwest. Readers will journey with Mindy through her coming-of-age ceremony and will trace the history of the Hopi tribe. John Harrington's impressive photography brings to life the Arizona landscape and the beautiful katchina dolls carved by Mindy's father and grandfather. Susan Secakuku of the Hopi Butterfly Clan relates in detail the ceremonies that are special to the Hopi, such as the Corn Grinding Ceremony. She shows what daily life is like today, high on the mesas of the American Southwest. This insightful and instructive book offers a rare glimpse into the contemporary culture of the Hopi tribe, while celebrating Native American life.
