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, Din (Navajo), Akimel Au-Authm and San Carlos Apache. You’ll enjoy dances like the Southwest Horse Dance, inter-tribal pow wow dancing, world championship level hoop dancing and the audience-participation round dance. Native Trails also features American Indian artisans, who will be selling specialty items like jewelry, baskets, flutes and paintings.

The event also features American Indian artisans selling specialty items like jewelry, baskets, flutes and paintings. Guests are invited to bring blankets, lawn chairs or picnic baskets to Civic Center Park and enjoy idyllic weather and exciting performances that will take you on a journey to the first Nations of Arizona and North America. Delicious light snacks and beverages also are available for purchase.

Native Trails is located in the heart of Scottsdale, Arizona, known for its superior winter climate and superb art. Discover all there is to offer during your visit to the Sonoran Desert! Treat yourself at one of our award-winning restaurants, or take advantage of the beautiful outdoors. Challenge yourself by hiking Camelback Mountain or hit the links at one of our 200 golf courses. Don’t miss Scottsdale’s Downtown Arts, Shopping, Dining and Entertainment Districts during your visit to the Southwest!

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.
