Hopi presentation in New York

Southwest Water Issues
Saturday, January 19
Kaufmann Theater, first floor
These programs focus on interstate water issues affecting American Indian tribes in Arizona and surrounding states.

Paatuwaqatsi H2Opi Run to Mexico
Film • 2:00 p.m., Linder Theater, first floor
Victor Masayesva, Jr., Director, 2006, 60 min.

Produced by the Black Mesa Trust, this film documents 26 Hopi runners' two-thousand-mile journey from their homes in northern Arizona to Mexico City, where they delivered the Hopi message that "water is life" to the 2006 World Water Forum. The Black Mesa Trust was founded in 1999 by Hopi people to address the severe consequences that Peabody Coal Company's water withdrawals from the Navajo Aquifer were having on the environment, cultures, and well-being of the Hopi and Diné (Navajo) living on Black Mesa. A presentation with Vernon Masayesva (Hopi), Executive Director, Black Mesa Trust, will follow the screening and include a question-and-answer session.

Nuvatukya'ovi Sinom Hopi Dance Group*
First Performance • 1:00 p.m., Kaufmann Theater, first floor
Second Performance • 4:00 p.m., Kaufmann Theater, first floor

For more than 2,000 years, the Hopis and their ancestors, the Hisatsinom (also known as Ancestral Pueblos), have inhabited a region of high, arid mesas in Arizona where rainfall averages less than ten inches a year. No constant rivers or streams flow through the territory, although a few permanent springs provide drinking water. In this presentation, the Nuvatukya'ovi Sinom Dance Group will present a colorful exhibition of ancient Hopi songs and dances related to water, including the Butterfly Dance, the Rainbow Dance, and the Water Maidens Dance.
