Summer Solstice marks the beginning of summer, and we celebrate the bounty the season brings with a week-long program of Native American-inspired events June 15-21. Guests are welcome to join in the activities, including Native American craft demonstrations. Try your hand at Navajo beadwork and learn the significance the stones hold, weave sash belts in the traditional Navajo style, watch how Hopi drums are made and see traditional and contemporary styles of Katsina Doll carvings.
Traditional dance performances will feature Hopi Derrick Suwaima Davis, the only seven-time Hoop Dance World Champion; and Chasingwind and The Pollen Trail Dancers performing Navajo dances to honor the Solstice.
We’ll be introducing a labyrinth, dedicating a Medicine Wheel, and much more during this special week.
