Changes in Attitudes Beliefs and Practices Regarding Gender

The period postdating this ethnographic sketch has seen major changes in Hopi life. The major ones regarding gender have been the reduction in importance of the clan and the transition to nuclear-family households, with increasing responsibilities for husbands and fathers and decreasing responsibilities for mothers' brothers and brothers. The husband-wife bond has become more central to people's lives over the past 60 years or so, and men spend more time at home with their wives and families.

Some women entered wage labor in the early 20th century, and now it is commonplace. Women also participate in modern political life. Some of the ceremonies have died out, but the three women's ceremonies are still held. While gender roles have undergone considerable change in the last 50 years or so, Hopi remains a sexually egalitarian culture.
