*What people lived on the Orabi plateau? - Hopi Indians.

*What is piki? How does one prepare it? - Piki (piki bread). A thin dry rolled bread made by the Hopi with corn meal. Obtains its dark gray/blue color and unique flavor due to the use of blue corn and culinary ash. The light, thin sheets are dry to the point of brittleness. It metls in the mouth. Has a delicate corn flavor. Blue corn is first reduced to a fine powder on a metate. It is mixed with water, and burnt ashes of native bushes for purposes of nixtamalization. The thin batter is smeared by hand over a large flat baking stone that has been heated over a fire and coated with oil made from pounded seeds of the native American plants squash and sunflower. (also from the seeds of watermelon). Bakes almost instantaneously and is peeled from the rock in sheets so thin they are translucent. Several sheets of the bread are often rolled up loosely into flattened scrolls. Takes several days to make from scratch. Piki is prepared by women in various phases of courtship and marriage ritual.

*When did horses originate in the Old West (Great Plains)? - the 19th Century.

*How good is your average buffalo’s eyesight? Why did this fact matter to the peoples of the Great Plains? - Poor eyesight. Easy for them to sneak up on.
