Museum of Northern Arizona
80th Annual Hopi Festival of Arts and Culture
July 6th – 7th, 2013
If you are going to be visiting us in Sedona, Arizona this coming 4th of July weekend, we highly recommend taking a day trip up to the Museum of Northern Arizona for the 80th Annual Hopi Festival of Arts & Culture.
Once again the big tent in the cool pines is going up at the Museum of Northern Arizona and Hopi people are making plans to travel to Flagstaff for the 80th Annual Hopi Festival of Arts and Culture, the oldest Hopi show in the world. Hopi life-ways, ancestors, migrations, and pottery will be part of this year’s Heritage Insights talks by cultural interpreters, with music, dances, and food on Saturday, July 6th and Sunday, July 7th, 2013!
“At the Museum, we are very excited to reach the 80-year mark for the Hopi Festival, originally known as the Hopi Craftsman Exhibition. The festival is a place where culture, creativity, and community happen. I hope everyone will come to be a part of this year’s excitement, and celebrate the long-standing relationship between the Museum and the Hopi people.” – Museum Director Dr. Robert Breunig
Inside the Heritage Insights Tent, Hopi educator Jennifer Joseph will serve as emcee and Hopi cultural interpreter. Visitors will see the Hopi traditional dances, hear songs and music, and learn of the Hopi language and stories through performances and talks. Joseph will create a place of dialogue, while sharing her knowledge. To see the full schedule of events for this festival click here.
