Walpi Village // First Mesa, Hopi Reservation, Arizona. Continuously inhabited for more than 1100 years. Walpi is the iconic village of the Hopi tribe. Founded in the thirteenth century in a cleft of the mesa formation, Walpi was moved to its current location as a defensive measure after the Pueblo Revolt of 1680. The village was built using hand-trimmed sandstone and earth, and grew organically over the centuries.
