Agriculture

A Sustainable Agriculture Research and Eductation (SARE) grant was used to develop a tool to create a V shaped furrow
for harvesting rainwater. It might be useful to Hopi farmers during
years of drought by increasing moisture availability.

Improved recordkeeping will allow Hopi ranchers to better manage their
herds and range units. The information that they collect can be used to
make wise choices.

The science education knowledge gained by children should prepare
them for high school and interest them in science, environmental and
other careers. For the tribe, production of their own plant materials
re-vegetation will allow them to use locally adaptive plants.
