The Hopi Indians of Arizona have had a strong predilection to Jamaican reggae music over the last thirty years. From this history has come the Hopi Indian reggae musician Casper Loma-da-wa Lomayesva. This thesis examines the music of Casper, focusing on how he has articulated the Rastafarian religious discourses of reggae to his own identity relations. Those relations being between him and the Hopi people, Hopi religion, "forces" at odds with Hopi people and religion, other Native Americans, and other reggae musicians.
