Respect Snake and Antelope Societies

Non-Indians are not allowed to observe, participate or attend any of the pre-ceremonial activities including the early morning races and the final ceremonial dances of the Songoobovi (Shungopavi) Snake and Antelope Societies this month. In the past, non-Indians, forcing the Snake and Antelope Priests to close these ceremonies to non-Indians, have disrespected these ceremonies. All Hopi individuals are requested to refrain from inviting their non-Indian friends to these ceremonies.
