Sipapu is a Hopi word for a small hole or indentation in the floor of a kiva or pithouse. Kivas were used by the Ancestral Puebloans, and are still used today. The sipapu symbolizes the portal through which their ancient ancestors first emerged to enter the present world. Moreover, The Hopi Sacred Stories explain that this is the hole in which the first peoples of this world entered. As “They” stepped outside of the “Sipapu”, they changed from lizard-like beings into homo sapiens, or human form. It is from this point that the “First Peoples” of the Earth began to divide and separate, creating differing tribes along the first journeys of the first humans.
