Naive Questions

How useful would a study of Nahuatl be to someone who is also interested in
learning the Hopi Language? I am camped out on my land down in Holbrook near
the Hopi and have family down in Aztec land... my cousins are fluent in
Navajo, but I want to learn Hopi/Aztec for both archaeological and personal
reasons... Is the book listed below still available from the same source
(University of Minnesota)? My primary interest is in the Hisat'sinom
("Anasazi", an appellation I prefer not to use) and links between 'Arizuma'
and the old Aztec. I may be half crazy, but hey, I'm also planning on living
in a pithouse. ;*)
