THE HOPI WAY, an odyssey, is the story of daily life among the Hopi Indians--beliefs, rituals and Kachina ceremonies. The interaction and conflict between white and Indian cultures are presented from the viewpoint of the Hopi family.
Robert Boissiere, born in Paris, France, came to the United States after World War II. A member of the French army, he was imprisoned in a Nazi prison camp from which he managed to escape and join a group of Basques in the Pyrenees. After moving to California, Boissiere found himself on an artistic and spiritual pilgrimage to the Hopi villages in northern Arizona. There he was adopted by a Hopi family and became a participant in their cultural life. THE HOPI WAY is based on his first-hand experiences livings as a Hopi.
PO PAI MO, Boissiere's first book, is also published by Sunstone Press. It is an autobiographical account of his life among the Hopis and subsequently his life at Taos Pueblo in New Mexico. Following his marriage to a Taos Indian woman, he became the first white man to live at the Pueblo. Widely praised by critics, PO PAI MO has found a receptive audience.
