According to Hopi story Hushkovi and Pivanhonkapi were destroyed by a fire that had been kindled in the San Francisco mts., 90 m. away, at the instance of the chief of Pivanhonkapi and with the aid of the Yayaponchatu people who are said to have been in league with supernatural forces, because the inhabitants of Pivanhonkapi had become degenerates through gambling. Most of the inhabitants were also destroyed; the survivors moved away, occupying several temporary villages during their wanderings, the ruins of which are still to be seen. See Voth, Traditions of the Hopi, 241, 1905.
