I have been working hard to develop a new website on Hopi runners: http://www.HopiRunners.com. The website will highlight the long tradition of running among the Hopi people of northeastern Arizona.
Here the public will find material on individual runners, links to photographs and videos, and articles and other sources related to Hopi running.
Every week, several people stumble upon BEYOND THE MESAS in search of information on Hopi runners. It seemed clear to me that an entire website ought to be dedicated to this topic.
I also want to highlight that the logo (above) for HopiRunners.com was designed by Wendell Sakiestewa of WenSaksDesigns. Wendell is Hopi, and he’s also a relative of mine.
The logo represents the continuity of Hopi running by depicting the transition of a traditional Hopi clan runner (far left) to a Hopi runner in modern running attire (far right).
I hope to have the website up and “running” at some point in February.

Matt- This is a great idea! Please let us know when it is activated! Thanks for doing this!
Thanks, Susan and George! Once the website has been activated, I’ll make an announcement about it on my blog. I hope people find it useful.
This is great!! Please let me know when it goes live, I want to share with the Colorado running community the heritage, history, and amazing spirit of the Hopi and their running. Also, we have a review of your book “The Indian School on Magnolia Ave.” currently underway. Should be done shortly.
