Spend Thanksgiving at Hopi with indigenous people, visit villages, Hopi feast in a home, see how they celebrate this American holiday bringing their own cultural depth to gratitude as a way of life, even survival. Hopi people really live the way of gratitude, so it is a special experience to share these good feelings with them. For many who have gone with me on these Thanksgiving weekend journeys (and for some of the Hopis as well), it is a reminder of the first Thanksgiving. Extend the 1-day trip with deeper Hopi immersion: Going to a backcountry rock art site; enjoy an evening program with music and a blessing circle, thoughtful discussions, exploration of your personal interests. Go home feeling like you have found a new family and perspective on life. Hopi artists will help you create a special rock art piece or gourd rattle to take home as a visual reminder of these heart-felt experiences. Navajoland at Canyon de ChellyThanksgiving weekend: feel the spirit of adventure and discovery as you jeep ride with a Navajo guide through this roadless, sandy, sheer, red-walled canyon famous for its beauty and the concentration of cliff dwellings and rock art of the ancestral pueblo people from 400 BC to 1300 AD. Includes a fire blessing ceremony. I am flexible to extend the Hopi day trip with independent travel journey overnight spending more time on day 2 with Hopi guide or going experience Navajo culture and Canyon de Chelly or to set up you own 1 - 4 day journey that begins with an cultural introduction and route review session with me in the Sedona area.
