Native American Heritage Days
Since time immemorial, eleven Native American tribes have called the Grand Canyon and surrounding areas of the Colorado Plateau home, frequently accessing the canyon for seasonal home sites, food or spiritual sites and ceremonies. Every year, Grand Canyon's Native American Heritage Days highlights the many accomplishments, contributions and sacrifices made by area tribes. Each tribe's unique and ancient cultural heritage is best expressed through the beauty of their art, power of their songs and grace of their people which are highlighted with a variety of guest speakers, artisans, singers and dancers. Hosted every November at the Shrine of the Ages (Grand Canyon Village, South Rim) the event is free and open to the public.
