Heard Guild Explores HuHuGam Ki Museum

huhugamThank you so much for arranging the visit to the Salt River, Maricopa, Pima reservation.  Two decades ago I drove past the buildings on Longmore road on a daily basis while commuting to work.  I never thought I would have the opportunity to participate in a small group tour of the museum and hear first hand about the history of changes impacting those very buildings and the peoples who inhabited them this past century.  It was really exciting.

Despite my love of food I was not anticipating having so much fun watching a demonstration of tortilla making and getting to make my own.  The dried cholla buds in my pantry are now calling to me.  I am going to  add them to my salads asap.  I would love to repeat this same visit next year.

You do such a great job arranging these trips.  I want you to know that I appreciate your efforts.

Kudos for Guild Trip to Hopi Land

“The Heard Museum Guild trip to Hopi Land exceeded our expectations to learn about Hopi Land, the culture, and the people. The trip coordinators;-Shelley Mowry from The Heard Museum Guild, Stephen Bernier from South of the Border Tours, and Mark Bahti as our guide-provided an informative and memorable experience The planned tours enriched our knowledge of the Hopi culture as artisans, farmers, and guides opened their homes and hearts to our group. The trip was organized, meaningful-and fun! We look forward to future trips and events with The Heard Museum Guild.”
