Don C. Talayesva

Don C. Talayesva (born Oraibi, Arizona in 1890; died?) was a Hopi who is noted for his autobiography, which was written in conjunction with Leo Simmons. Talayesva had begun life in a traditional Hopi manner, but had spent ten years largely in white culture before making a full return to the Hopi way. It has been suggested that Simmons method of interviewing may have led Talayesva to reveal more than he entirely felt comfortable doing and this aspect has been an element of discussion concerning him.
