North Rim Heritage Week

Heritage Week takes place during August. The event celebrates the rich cultural diversity of the Colorado Plateau, the Arizona Strip and Grand Canyon.

Native American Heritage Week began in 1993 as “Paiute Days” which celebrated the Paiute as the last Native American group to occupy the North Rim of what would become Grand Canyon National Park. In 1997, the event was expanded to include all Native American groups with cultural ties to the Grand Canyon. Today, eleven tribes maintain strong cultural connections to the canyon.

Throughout Native American Heritage Week, special programs will be offered by tribal members and non-tribal members on a variety of subjects, ranging from ethno-botany to Native American music and dance. Programmed activities will take place in various locations throughout the North Rim developed area.

Note: Regularly scheduled ranger programs will not be presented during this special event.
