September 2014 Native American Arts Auction Cancelled

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 the 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.
