The Hopi Tribe is a sovereign nation located in northeastern Arizona. Their reservation encompasses more than 1.5-million acres, and is made up of 12 villages on three mesas.
Since time immemorial the Hopi people have lived in Hopitutskwa, knowledge and respect for the earth, and they continue to maintain a sacred covenant with Maasaw, its ancient caretaker, to live as peaceful and humble farmers. Over the centuries Hopi endures as a tribe, retaining its culture, language, and religion despite influences from the outside world. During their festival, the Hopi people will share artist demonstrations, history presentations, and performances of music and dance.
This festival is presented with the generous support of the Luce Foundation.
