Kokopelli : the making of an icon by Ekkehart Malotki( Book )

7 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 678 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, the Hopi scholar Ekkehart Malotki describes the development of the Kokopelli phenomenon in American mass culture from its beginning to Kokopelli's present status as pan-Southwestern icon. He explores the figure's connections with the Hopi kachina god Kookopolo and Maahu, the cicada, and discusses how this rock art image has been appropriated and misunderstood. Kokopelli sheds light on a little-understood aspect of Hopi culture and testifies to the continuing power of Native cultures to spark the popular imagination and interest of outsiders."--Jacket

Hopi Coyote tales = Istutuwutsi by Ekkehart Malotki( Book )

14 editions published between 1984 and 1992 in 4 languages and held by 465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume brings together twenty-one traditional tales recently retold by Hopi narrators. Complete with English translations and original Hopi transcriptions on facing pages and a bilingual glossary. Hopi Coyote Tales is important to an understanding of the Hopi language and folklore. To nomadic hunters such as the Navajo, who competed with him on the open range, Coyote was by turns a formidable trickster, a demonic witchperson, and a god. As sedentary planters, the Hopis tended to reduce Coyote to the level of a laughable fool. In these tales Coyote is a friendly bumbler whose mistakes teach listeners what tricks to avoid. Time after time he is hurt or killed for failing to understand a situation correctly. The collection is as amusing as animal fables should be, as simply told, and as instructive. Published as a companion volume to Father Berard Haile's Navajo Coyote Tales, Hopi Coyote Tales is a valuable contribution to cross-cultural studies

The bedbugs' night dance and other Hopi sexual tales = Mumuspi'yyungqa tuutuwutsi( Book )

9 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The mysteries and complexities of sex - the wonder of sexual initiation, the discomfort of sexual desire, the penalties of indulgence, and the power of erotic love - have all found expression in Hopi tales. Sometimes cast in animal fables, sometimes presented in monstrous exaggeration to emphasize the power of sexual appetite, and sometimes as wildly bawdy as Shakespeare, the tales evoke the candor of Hopi imagination and the vitality of Hopi culture." "This volume gives each tale in the original Hopi and in English translation on facing pages. The tales include Bedbug Boy and his constantly interrupted dinner, how the Hehey'as tricked the Itsivus and took advantage of their wives, and how the Horned Lizard girls found a new use for chili powder." "Ekkehart Malotki's preface and glossary clarify terms and concepts and provide background for the stories and the storytelling. E.N. Genovese's introduction puts the collection in the broad context of classical Greek and Latin literature and describes how the Hopi stories are distinct in their own right."--Jacket

Hopi tales of destruction( Book )

6 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The tales concern such villages as Sikyatki, Hisatsongoopavi, and Awat'ovi, which were destroyed by war, fire, earthquake, or internal strife. Though abandoned for centuries, they live in memory, reminders of ancient tragedies and enmities that changed the Hopis forever. Related by storytellers from Second and Third Mesa, these tales vividly describe village destruction and show how much human evils such as witchcraft, hubris, corruption and betrayal of fundamental values can precipitate social disintegration and chaos."--Jacket

6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection features popular animal figures from thirty Hopi folktales and myths.

Ekkehart Malotki has compiled and meticulously edited Hopi and English versions of the tales in this bilingual edition. An introduction by the distinguished folklore scholar Barre Toelken examines the cultural context of Hopi oral narratives and draws upon recent scholarly perspectives on folktales to place the tales within a wider, comparative context

Earth Fire : a Hopi legend of the Sunset Crater eruption by Ekkehart Malotki( Book )

7 editions published between 1987 and 2005 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first bilingual presentation of an ancient and powerful Hopi legend. The creation of Sunset Crater, in northeastern Arizona, plays a climactic role in this legend in which the Ka'nas kachina mingles with mortals, and through a saga of marriage and magic, betrayal and revenge, prosperity and famine, tests their loyalty, brings them to near starvation, and, finally, takes pity on the steadfast survivors. Also included in this volume are chapters on the archaeology and geology of the Sunset Crater region. A discussion of the Hopi alphabet and an extensive glossary benefit those more interested in Hopi language. Because legend and folklore capture the basic foundations of culture, this book is an important contribution to Hopi literature, and takes an important stride toward reaching cross-cultural understanding"--Book cover

Early rock art of the American West : the geometric enigma by Ekkehart Malotki( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The earliest rock art - in the Americas as elsewhere - is geometric or abstract. Until now, however, no book-length study has been devoted to the deep antiquity and amazing range of geometrics and the fascinating questions that arise from their ubiquity and variety. Why did they precede representational marks? What is known about their origins and functions? Why and how did humans begin to make marks, and what does this practice tell us about the early human mind? With some two hundred striking color images and discussions of chronology, dating, sites, and styles, this pioneering investigation of abstract geometrics on stone (as well as bone, ivory, and shell) explores its wide-ranging subject from the perspectives of ethnology, evolutionary biology, cognitive archaeology, and the psychology of artmaking. The authors' approach instills a greater respect for a largely unknown and underappreciated form of paleoart, suggesting that before humans became Homo symbolicus or even Homo religiosus, they were mark-makers - Homo aestheticus
