Introduction by Kelley Hays-Gilpin, Ph.D.; Emory Sekaquaptewa, J.D.; and Dorothy K. Washburn, Ph.D. The painted murals on the walls of Hopi kivas contain images - visual metaphors - informing people of the proper way to live a full, good life. Sìitàlpuva: "Through the Land Brightened with Flowers" by Kelley Hays-Gilpin, Ph.D., and Emory Sekaquaptewa, J.D. Images of flowers, birds, and butterflies convey a special meaning to Pueblo people - of a gleaming"flowery spirit world" brought forth by songs, prayers, and hard work. "Metaphors of Meaning in Mural Paintings, Pottery, and Ritual Song" by Emory Sekaquaptewa, J.D. and Dorothy K. Washburn, Ph.D. For the Hopi, the metaphors of ritual song complement imagery. Words give voice to the processes and principles of life - birth, growth, maturity, and fertility and beauty. Painting "Journey of the Human Spirit:" A Contemporary Hopi Mural by Lomawywesa (Michael Kabotie) and Coochsiwukioma (Delbridge Honanaie) with Tanya Lee and Garrett Rosenblatt Inspired by ancient Awat'ovi murals, two artists reveal their personal journeys as creative individuals and as Hopi seeking the proper balance in the world. Two Hopi Songs, translated by Emory Sekaquaptewa, J.D. Poem: "Between" by Lomawywesa (Michael Kabotie)
