TRIBES OF THE SOUTHWEST USA
# TRIP 2: NATIVE AMERICAN PEOPLES OF THE COLORADO PLATEAU (Hopi, Navajo and Zuni Pueblo)
July (7 nights)
Ancient and contemporary understandings
[Arizona & New Mexico]

Immerse yourself in the culture of the Native American peoples of the Colorado Plateau - the Dineh (Navajo), the Zuni and the Hopi. Live alongside them and learn from their culture and their heritage. Expose yourself to their ways of life in harmony with the natural world. Be inspired by their lands, hear their stories, feel their rich history, see their modern day.

For six full days you have the chance to visit thriving communities across New Mexico and Arizona, from the Zuni Pueblo to the Chaco Canyon, from the heart of the Navajo Nation to a Hopi Mesa. You will travel to important historical sites, be awestruck by beautiful vistas, participate in arts, crafts and music, and perhaps best of all, have the opportunity to spend time with local people keen to share knowledge of their culture.

This amazing experience is a great way of getting to know more about the living culture of three strands of the Native American southwest, in a way which is sensitively put together with the support and expertise of local guides and teachers.
