Nestled deep in the high desert landscape, the Navajo Village offers you a chance to explore the powerful culture and heritage of the Dine, the Navajo.
Stories that have been passed down through generations are re-told, and you have the change to take part in the story telling yourselves! It's a rate learning opportunity to observe and absorb a unique perspective on life.
Also at the Navajo Village Heritage Center, you can tour through traditional Navajo dwellings, learning about how each structure was built, and how it was used.
You can hear a Navajo Cultural Presentation, and see a traditional weaving presentation! It's with this they teach the art of rug weaving, as well as the roles of women within Navajo culture.
The tour is finished with a beautiful Native American Dance Presentation.
