NATIVE AMERICAN ART
Held each May and September
The Friends of Hubbell Trading Post National Historic Site, in partnership with the National Park Service, conduct two Native American Art Auctions at the park each year. Over 400 items are offered in each auction including contemporary and antique Navajo weavings, Pueblo Katsina dolls, pottery, paintings, carvings and baskets from several tribes ranging in price from just $20 to over $4000. The auctions begin at noon, daylight saving time with the preview from 9:00 to 11:00 am.
In addition to the auction the Hubbell family home is open for tours in the morning and the trading post store will be open throughout the day. Arts, crafts and food vendors will also be on-site for your enjoyment.
The event takes place outdoors in a big tent at the National Historic Site in Ganado, Arizona on Highway 264 (1/2 mile west of Highway 191).
