The Cultural Demonstrator Program at Petrified Forest National Park provides the opportunity for local artisans to share their history and traditional crafts with park visitors. Demonstrations can be seen regularly during the spring and summer at Painted Desert Inn.

The park is pleased to promote awareness and appreciation for the history and diverse cultures of the region. Our demonstrators help connect us to ancient peoples, intertribal relationships, European-descent cultures, and even Route 66 history.
