Lyrics and translation of a Hopi song I would like to learn

I would like to sing this song while understanding what it is about, so I'd be grateful for any pointers. The credits show Alph Secakuku as the singer, but I haven't yet found this recording elsewhere. I am also trying to contact him... but I thought I'd try here, too.

I was hoping that the Hopi Nation website had a good contact to connect people from outside the Nation with information about the Hopi language, but no such luck. The closest I found was the public relations office, as the rest of the contacts are for services to the Nation.

Trevor Reed is a Hopi musician/musicologist who might be able to offer some valuable guidance here. Maybe ask him?

Thanks, dr. boludo, I'll try that.

No luck as yet, Trevor Reed didn't write back, neither did the singer, so still unresolved.
