ISO 639 code: hop
Hopi is a Uto-Aztecan language spoken by approximately 5,000 people in northeastern Arizona. Though there are relatively few speakers, the language is still being passed on to children, there is a comprehensive Hopi-English dictionary and a group called the Hopi Literacy Project are working to promote the language.
Hopi has an interesting way of expressing concepts of time and space: for something that happens a long way from a speaker is described as having happened in the distant past.
