  • Scope and Content: The collection consists of one small folder relating to New Mexico history, and a three-parttypescript, which was written by George P. Hammond, and belonged to Senator Clinton P.Anderson. The typescript describes what Hammond calls "Navajo-Hopi Relations" between theyears 1540-1882, 1882-1922, and 1911-1956, respectively, in the Navajo-Hopi reservation ofArizona. After presenting population statistics for each tribe, Hammond provides a detailedhistory of the region. The theme of how relations between the Navajos and Hopis were strained byU.S. intervention with regard to schools, land, and water rights runs throughout the three tomes..Numerous failed accounts of U.S. attempts to move the Hopi off their mesas and into reservationsare accompanied by stereotypical descriptions of the Hopi as stubborn and resistant to change aswell as criticism of their religious and social practices.
