In 1900, a brilliant Indian named Nampeyo began to make pottery in the spirit of the ancient traditions of the Hopi Indians. However, the Hopi are now known not only for its pottery and silver ornaments; they are primarily known for dolls - "Kachina". Art cut these figures in height from 7.5 to 45 cm of cotton piece of wood is not ancient; they possess incomplete hundred years. These dolls began to make in order to help children memorize 250 deities in the male and female form, which these dolls portrayed. But if the figures are not ancient, they portrayed the holy spirits who live in the mountains of northern Arizona and Hopi villages coming in every winter, of course.

They are tolerable "basket-" indifferent to the ceramics and, of course, outstanding masters for the production of handmade silver jewelry. However, it should be noted that the area in which they have in the past few centuries have demonstrated a truly inimitable and distinctive style of its own: it is weaving.

Hopi tribe has a great culture that fully is reflected in their handicraft, pottery, cloths making and so on.

Of the many tribes of the south-west, have kept the tradition of pottery production, highlight the Hopi, producing, though to a limited extent, pitchers amazing quality, and Maricopa, which produce remarkable vases and magnificent blood-red pitchers with high neck.
