More About this Item


Description: Hopi, Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Sterling Silver Earrings. Silver Tested. Base Stand Not Included. Estimated more than 50 yrs old. The Hopi are one of many Native American cultures in the Southwestern United States. The name Hopi is a shortened form of their autonym, Hopituh Shi-nu-mu "The Peaceful People". The Hopi Dictionary gives the primary meaning of the word "Hopi" as "behaving one, one who is mannered, civilized, peaceable, polite, who adheres to the Hopi way." In the past, Hopi sometimes used the term "Hopi" and its cognates to refer to the Pueblo peoples in general, in contrast to other, more warlike tribes. When first encountered by the Spanish in the 16th century, these cultures were referred to as Pueblo people because they lived in villages. The Hopi are descended from the Ancient Pueblo Peoples, Hopi: Hisatsinom or Navajo: Anasazi, who constructed large apartment house complexes in northeastern Arizona, northwestern New Mexico, and southwestern Colorado. They lived along the Mogollon Rim, especially from the 12th to 14th century, when they abandoned their large villages. No researchers have been able to determine the reason, although it is likely that a drying of water sources would have forced the people away. (Wikipedia) Size: See Ruler Photo.
