Grand Canyon Native American Heritage Month

Native American Heritage Month

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. Every November Grand Canyon National Parks offers different events to celebrate Native American Heritage month.
