Art excursion to Historic Navajo, Zuni, and Hopi Trading Posts

September 16 – September 20
 

Journey with Art Center Executive Director, Lee Borden, United Way of Mesa County Executive Director, Zebulon Miracle, and Dr. Peter Booth

Trading posts on the Navajo, Zuni, and Hopi reservations have historically served as a cultural connection between the Native People and the outside world. Besides being social and economic centers, they are central to the evolution of the Navajo, Zuni, and Hopi arts such as weaving and pottery. One of the best ways to discover the Native culture and art is by visiting trading posts.
