About This Item

Millwood, NY: Kraus Reprint Company, 1974. Reprint. Original wraps. Near fine. Near fine in original paper wrappers. Top edge of cover showing fading. From the private library of Larry Southwick. Illustrated with black and white photos, maps, charts, graphs and drawings. 277 pp. plus 4 pp. black and white photos. Quarto, 8 1/2 x 11 inches tall. Oraibi was founded sometime before the year 1100 AD, making it one of the oldest continuously inhabited settlements within the United States. Archeologists speculate that a series of severe droughts in the late 13th century forced the Hopi to abandon several smaller villages in the region and consolidate within a few population centers. As Oraibi was one of these surviving settlements its population grew considerably, and became populous and the most influential of the Hopi settlements. By 1890 the village was estimated to have a population of 905, almost half of the 1,824 estimated to be living in all of the Hopi settlements at the time. "Oraibi remained unknown to European explorers until about 1540 when Spanish explorer Don Pedro de Tovar (who was part of the Coronado expedition) encountered the Hopi while searching for the legendary Seven Cities of Gold. Contact with the Europeans remained scant until 1629 when the San Francisco mission was established in the village. In 1680 the Pueblo Revolt resulted in decreased Spanish influence in the area and the cessation of the mission. Subsequent attempts to reestablish the missions in Hopi villages were met with repeated failures. The former mission is still visible today as a ruin." - wikipedia
