Hopi Weavers

Mary-Russell Colton, an original founder of the Museum of Northern Arizona, recorded 213 Hopi weavers in the 1930's, all were male. Today, textile weaving among the Hopi people is now a fading memory. So once again, it is historically refreshing to see the work of Edward S. Curtis who in the very early years of the past century captured this image of a Hopi man weaver at work on his loom.
