“Matriarch Maquette”

by: Kim Obrzut


In the way of the Hopi, the Grandmother plays a very important role in the society. The women of the Hopi own the home and the seeds that are planted each year. The Grandmother awaits patiently for her grandchildren to come forth. The baby will be taken to greet the sun on the twentieth day and will be given a name with their first ear of red corn, which is the naming corn. The Grandmother is the one who will often name the children, giving the child their Hopi name, at which time the child will be given the first of the four corns that they will receive in life. The Grandmother leads in wisdom and knowledge. She is the Matriarch of the family.
