Welcome to the Hopi Pu'tavi Project!
To make training, education and business opportunities available to the Hopi people, particularly youth, on the
Hopi Reservation, to enhance the quality of life and culture.
The Hopi Putavi Project
The Hopi Pu'tavi Project is a non-profit organization serving the needs of Hopi youth and families. It is located in Second Mesa, Arizona. Second Mesa is a small town in northern Arizona, on the Hopi Reservation, 60 miles north of Winslow, at the junction of Highway 87 and Highway 264. The mailing address of the Hopi Putavi Project is: Hopi Putavi Project, Inc., P.O. Box 466, Second Mesa, AZ 86043.
The Hopi Community is remote and rural. It exists basically around three mesas about 100 miles northeast of Flagstaff. It extends to two villages near Tuba City at the northwest edge of the reservation boundary. Tuba City, actually located on Navajo land, is the nearest grocery store and the location of many agencies which cannot be accessed on the Hopi Reservation. As of September 25, 2007, there are 12,544 Hopi/Tewa tribal members living on the reservation and 5,209 living off reservation. The Hopi community suffers from the lack of gainful employment and resources for jobs and income that are typical for many rural communities, but their community is different in the type of industry they would like to develop because of Hopi culture and traditions.
Since April 14, 1999, Hopi Pu'tavi Project has been operating on the Hopi reservation to accomplish specific goals and purposes for all Hopi youth and their families. The Project became incorporated as a non-profit organization in 2000.
