Navajo Cultural Center of Kayenta

Navajo Cultural Center of Kayenta Review

Take a self-guided walking tour through the the Navajo Cultural Center of Kayenta, which includes the small Shadehouse Museum and a 2-acre outdoor cultural park. The museum is designed to resemble an authentic shade house (these wood-frame, rather crude, structures are used to shelter sheepherders in the region's often unforgiving high desert). Inside visitors will find an extensive collection of Navajo Code Talkers memorabilia and local artwork, as well as exhibits on the beliefs and traditions that have shaped North America's largest Native American tribe. As you walk through the grounds of the cultural park, note the different types of traditional hogans and sweat lodges.
