Explore Walpi, located
on First Mesa, is a historic village, with its high-rise dwellings and
beautiful sunsets. First Mesa villages are recognized for fine pottery
and Katsina dolls. The Hopi Cultural Center is located on the Second
Mesa, along with the villages Shungopavi, Sipaulvi and Mishongnovi.
Second Mesa villages are noted for coiled baskets and Katsina dolls.
In the villages of the Third Mesa, the women specialize in weaving plaques
and baskets of multicolored wicker. These have ceremonial uses, and
are also made for the craft market. Indeed, rarely is a Hopi craft merely
an attractive design executed in a particular style; all depict something
considered important to the maker.
