The Hopi photographs : Kate Cory, 1905-1912 by Kate Cory( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This extraordinary collection of photographs was made 80 years ago on the Hopi mesas of northern Arizona by Kate Thompson Cory, a woman out of step with her time. For unknown reasons, Cory was not only befriended by the normally xenophobic Hopi, and given a home in their villages, she was allowed something almost all outsiders have been denied: a look into the heart of Hopi life. The results of that trust are images of social and sacred events unlike anything seen through the eye of a camera. Cory's intimacy with the Hopi is apparent in each of these images. From her portraits, and scenes of daily life, to the exotic rituals that have fascinated visitors for centuries, she captured the Hopi Way, the profound spiritual and orderly community that allowed Hopi cultures to endure for a thousand years. That she could have achieved such a high technical quality is equally remarkable. She became an adept and dexterous photographer at a time when most Americans considered the medium a novelty. What has been achieved by bringing this collection to light is a record of unarguable historic and aesthetic importance- the capture of anthropological moments frozen in time, when change had not yet overwhelmed the enduring Hopi. -- from Back Cover

An atlas of historic New Mexico maps, 1550-1941 by Peter L Eidenbach( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Strange as it may seem from our modern American perspective, New Mexico was literally a foreign country until the middle of the nineteenth century and, as field archaeologist and history instructor Peter Eidenbach discovered, in the minds of some it still is. The New Mexico landscape is easy to get lost in and much of its terrain has not been fully explored in many years. Yet, the state holds a rich cartographic history not often recognized by the many people who daily interact with its topography. Approaching this gap as a teacher and enthusiast, Eidenbach set about compiling a collection of New Mexico's historic maps, navigating through a varied terrain of research and discovery, even securing permissions for colonial-era maps held in special collections with limited public access. This collection, featuring beautifully rendered diagrams of New Mexico's landscape, allows exploration of the past as seen by that past's inhabitants.--Amazon.com

Edward Sheriff Curtis : visions of a vanishing race by Edward S Curtis( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1976, this book is the classic photographic record of Native American life by one of America's greatest photographers." "From 1904 to 1930, Edward Sheriff Curtis sought out the vanishing tribes of Native Americans with an unwavering passion and dedication. His life's work was to record the faces and lifestyles of the Indians before they vanished forever. He photographed more than eighty tribes, from the Southwest to the Arctic. It was an achievement both poignant and monumental." "For this book, Curtis's daughter, Florence, has selected 175 of her father's greatest photographs. She has also collaborated closely with Victor Boesen to give readers a moving and detailed biography of Curtis's life and work. In addition, there is a memoir of Curtis by his son, Harold."--Jacket

The Navajo-Hopi land dispute : an American tragedy by David M Brugge( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1882 President Chester A. Arthur signed an executive order that created a joint-occupation reservation for both Hopis and western Navajos in present-day Arizona. This policy was the start of a century-long land dispute between the two tribes. The Navajo-Hopi Land Dispute recounts the origins and history of the legal battle between the two peoples for control of the 1882 reservation, focusing on the federal court case, Healing v. Jones, in which the author served as a consultant for the Navajo Nation."--BOOK JACKET. "Although the federal government wanted to relocate impoverished Navajos from the disputed land, Brugge firmly believed that a fair court hearing would reinforce the Navajo claim. His account of Healing vs. Jones - events leading to the case, the court case itself, and the aftermath of the judge's decision - tries to balance the extreme positions staked out by advocates for the Hopis and the Navajos. Brugge argues that, to this day, the Navajos suffer stereotyping and prejudice, both of which were decisive in the tragic outcome of the legal battle. Lawyers for the Hopis, he contends, exploited ethnic hatred to the benefit of their client tribe and to the detriment of the Navajos."--BOOK JACKET
