This CD was made possible in part by a generous grant from the American Composers Forum-Common Ground grant program. Common Ground offered Hopi women the opportunity to participate in a collaborative effort to professional record traditional and contemporary Hopi songs. These 7 Hopi performers are inspired to continue using their skills to record songs that help perpetuate the Hopi language. Hopi songs are teaching tools and easily modified to fit the situation. Common Ground has given us the opportunity to preserve the songs and begin to produce material for teaching our language. It has opened the doors for sharing, an elaboration on traditional teachings. This allows us to revisit the childhood of our elders. Eskwelí, thank you for your support.

Living through Hopi songs is dedicated to Ferrell Secakuku. Ferrell wrote all of the songs and recorded them at Second Mesa in 2007. He passed away shortly after that, before Mesa Media could produce the CD. Join us in honoring Ferrell.
