The Hopi Indian culture is centered near Three Mesas within the Navajo Nation in Northeastern Arizona. Since about 1300 A.D. the Hopi religion and associated "Kachina Cult" has been characterized by the Kachina spirits.

Ceremonies are held on a regular basis and often involve various dances and other celebrations.

Having studied the American Indian history and culture for 35 years, Slutzky will share his insightful knowledge of the Hopis particularly focusing on his collection and carvings of the Hopi Kachina dolls in his presentation.
