9780143106050: The Origin Myth of Acoma Pueblo (Penguin Classics)

This is the account of Edward Proctor Hunt, a Pueblo Indian Native American member of many secret societies, who in 1928 broke with his people's social and religious codes to recite the origin myth of the Acoma Indians to scholars.

Recounting a classic Native American story of creation, migration and residence, this myth offers a unique window into indigenous cosmology and ancient history, revealing how a pre-modern society addressed existential questions and formed its own narrative of the world.

This edition includes an introduction and notes by Peter Nabokov.
