The Cultural Demonstrator Program at Petrified Forest National Park provides the opportunity for regional people to share their history and traditional crafts in the dynamic setting of Petrified Forest National Park.

The park is pleased to promote awareness and appreciation for the diverse history and cultures of the region in March and during the summer. Through cultural demonstrators, we can recognize the ancient peoples, intertribal relationships, European-descent cultures and even Route 66 history.
