Ancient Hopi Pueblo Site Tours

July 1 through July 27, 2013
Homolovi Visitor Center
Winslow

Ancient Hopi Pueblo Site Tours at Homolovi II, Saturdays from June 22 to July 27, at Homolovi State Park

Homolovi State Park has partnered with the Old Trails Museum to host special tours of Homolovi II, the largest of the ancient Hopi villages located at Homolovi State Park, on Saturdays from June 22 to July 27, 2013.

Attendees should meet at 1 p.m. at the Homolovi Visitor Center (then travel by vehicle to the Homolovi II site for a tour start time of 1:15 pm). The tour will last about one hour. The $7 park entrance fee will apply. This tour is ADA accessible. Guests who need a sign language interpreter should contact the park in advance by calling (928) 289-4106 to make a reservation.

These special tours are part of Winslow's tour stop for the Smithsonian's Journey Series traveling exhibition, hosted by the Old Trails Museum at La Posada Hotel from June 22 through August 4, 2013. The exhibition shows how our evolving mobility changed a young nation and how transportation made us grow. The accounts of travelers themselves express the hopes and promises of fresh starts, the grim realities of forced migrations and difficult journeys, and the thrills of personal travel.

Journey Stories is part of Museum on Main Street, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and State Humanities Councils nationwide. After the exhibit leaves Winslow it will travel around Arizona to the communities of Springerville (Casa Malpais) August 10 to September 22, 2013, Kingman (Kingman Powerhouse Visitors Center Mohave Museum of History and Arts) September 28 to November 10, 2013, Florence (McFarland State Historic Park) November 16 to December 29, 2013, Patagonia (Patagonia Public Library) January 4 to February 16, 2014 and Sierra Vista (Henry F. Hauser Museum) February 22 to April 6, 2014. For information on all local Journeys to Winslow companion exhibits and programs, go to www.oldtrailsmuseum.org or the Arizona Humanities Council website at www.azhumanities.org. Journey Stories is made possible in Winslow by the Arizona Humanities Council and support for Museum on Main Street has been provided by the United States Congress.

Homolovi, one of a series of many ancient Hopi pueblos found in the Southwest, offers the public the opportunity to begin their journey into Hopi life and culture. Like the modern visitor making their way to Hopi, Homolovi was a stop for the ancestral Hopi people along their migration route, eventually moving on and settling at one of the current Hopi villages.
