Presented by the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation
For over a decade, Native Trails has taken audiences on a cultural journey to the First Nations of Arizona and North America through traditional native music, dance and art. Native Trails brings together traditional instruments, colorful dances, and customary attire to share the stories of Southwestern tribes, including the Hopi, Dine (Navajo), Akimel Au-Authm and San Carlos Apache. You’ll enjoy performances like the Southwest Horse Dance, inter-tribal pow wow dancing, world championship level hoop dancing and the audience-participation round dance.
The event also features American Indian artisans selling specialty items like jewelry, baskets, flutes and paintings. Delicious light snacks and beverages also are available for purchase. Guests are invited to bring blankets, lawn chairs or picnic baskets to Civic Center Park and enjoy idyllic weather and exciting performances that will delight your senses.
During your visit to Scottsdale, experience all the city has to offer from desert exploration and outdoor thrills to fabulous dining and shopping. Scottsdale is home to over 200 of the finest golf courses in the world and offers endless outdoor activities.
“The Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation is proud to once again be the sponsor of Native Trails. We know you will enjoy experiencing first-hand the various Native Cultures and exciting exhibits.”
~President Ruben Balderas, Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation.
