When the museum reopens, you can: 

  • View: 2000 to 4000-year-old cultural items along with traditional handicrafts made by Grand Canyon's tribal communities.
  • Learn: about the people who made this place their home, and the tribes who are here today.

This was a thriving community that created rooms, kivas, pottery, arrowheads and other household items which all still hold cultural significance to Indigenous people today.
