Copenwashie (Moencopi)

The Vanishing American: Dark rich green fields of alfalfa formed the floor of this valley, making the hot walls of stone naked and stark by contrast. Marian saw clusters of trees beginning to show green, and the roofs of two flat houses.

"What's this place?" she inquired.

"Copenwashie," replied the Indian.

"Are those green fields Indian farms?"

"Some are. White people got most land now."

(Chapter III)

Down Into the Desert: Next day we went down to see the Moki village [Moencopi]. This Hopi or Moki village was a cluster of stone and adobe homes on a bluff.
