On Saturday evening, June 18th, Montezuma Castle National Monument continues its Centennial Concert Series with an evening flute concert featuring Myron Beeson.Myron Beeson is an extraordinary Native American talent. Three quarters Navajo and one quarter Hopi, he was raised on the Hopi Indian Reservation near Second Mesa, Arizona.
From an early age he imitated his elders while they practiced the age old traditions of painting, carving and making music.As he grew, so did his talent.Mr. Beeson went on to study at Bacone College in Muskogee, OK and he also studied at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
"Painting and carving give me the time I need to relax both my mind and body and give me a sense of peace - it's meditation for me" says Myson Beeson.Mr. Beeson will also be in the park over the weekend selling his unique artwork.
