Food is handed down to the men in the kiva, March 24, 2019, Moenkopi, Arizona. It's the groom’s responsibility to help gather the materials needed for the robe and the reeds for the wedding suitcase. They are both made inside the kiva, a traditional structure built underground and used for ceremonies by the Hopi people. The length of the wedding varies, depending on how long it takes for the bride's robes and suitcase to be completed. Weaving starts on the first day of the wedding when the bride arrives at her in-laws’ house, and she stays until they're completed, so she can wear them on her return journey home.
