Hopi Dance

Quick Reference

The Hopi people of N. Arizona have traditionally believed that it is their duty to provide rain, and dance has played a major part in the ritual ceremonies by which they have sought to bring this about. These ceremonial dances have become internationally celebrated for their rhythmic intricacy and complex orchestration of groups as well as their use of elaborate costumes and masks.
