Additional Details:
Life in a Hopi village is different from that in other Indian villages. Among the Hopi marriage by purchase does not exist; the choice of a life companion is left almost entirely to the couple contemplating the marriage. The social status of the Hopi maiden is known by the way she dresses her hair, - two enormous whorls indicate the single woman, but when they marry the whorls are undone and the hair loosened and tied with a knot on each side of the head
