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

7 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 683 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 468 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"--Publisher description (viewed Feb. 6, 2015)

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

8 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 306 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 259 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
