The Friends of Hubbell Trading Post NHS, in partnership with the National Park Service, have hosted the Native American Arts auctions each year. The auctions were held in May and September.

Superintendent Masayumptewa expressed, "It is with regret that we have decided to cancel the second of our two yearly auctions. We ran into some unforeseen circumstances and should be able to address them soon and be better prepared for next May 2015 auction. We apologize to any inconvenience for we know that many people look forward to being a part of these auctions. It is a fun event and provides for an opportunity to gather to meet with friends and make new ones. We do hope that this does not discourage you from being a part of future events at Hubbell Trading Post National Historic Site."

The Friends of Hubbell will hold a Native American Arts auction on September 27, 2014 at Navajo Nation Museum in Window Rock, Arizona. For more information, please call Frank Kohler at (602) 571-1122.

Early December 2014

Over 700 luminarias will be placed on the grounds of the National Historic Site and their candles lit for this annual holiday celebration. The Spanish words luminaria and farrolito mean little lights or flames. This Hispanic tradition is widely practiced in New Mexico and has been presented at Hubbell Trading Post each December since the early 1990s.
