The Hopi Indians have been Arizona natives for thousands of years. Today, they reside primarily on the Hopi reservation in the northeastern part of the state, which is surrounded entirely by the larger Navajo reservation.
The Hopi live in pueblos or adobe houses made of dry clay and stone built at the top of the mesas that dominate the region. They are skilled artisans and well-known for their pottery and rugs. Corn, squash, pumpkin and beans are their most commonly cultivated crops, though they have also been known to grow tobacco and cotton over the years. The original Hopi language is still used today, though most of the tribe speaks English equally as well.
