Sun Chief : the autobiography of a Hopi Indian by Don C Talayesva( Book )

34 editions published between 1942 and 2012 in English and French and held by 602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Don C. Talayesva of Oraibi, Arizona, the Sun Chief, was an individual caught between two cultures. He was born, and reared until he was ten, as a Hopi Indian, and then trained until twenty to be an American citizen. Although torn between two worlds, he returned to Hopiland, renounced Christianity, entered into tribal adulthood, joined secret socities, and worshiped the rain gods in elaborate rituals and dances. For Leo Simmons, a white man who was adopted as a clan brother, he finally wrote the story of his life in all its extraordinary detail. Dr. Simmons prepared this story for publication and has added a valuable introduction, supplemented and brought up to date by Robert V. Hine. -- from back cover
