Arizona's Original Slow Food Farmers

An exhibit of historic Hopi photos circa 1890-1970 will be unveiled by the Hopi Natwani Coalition at a unique one day expo on Saturday January 22, 2011, at the Moenkopi Legacy Inn & Suites in the Upper Village of Moenkopi, AZ.

They will focus on the heritage of dry farming that has been the staple of Hopi life on the mesas for a thousand years. The photo exhibit will remain on public display at the Moenkopi Legacy Inn & Suites for the coming year. This will be the first in a series of programs hosted by Moenkopi Legacy Inn & Suites and the Natwani Coalition. Workshops and tours to Village gardens, personal corn fields, and meals in Hopi homes will be offered throughout the year.

The workshop day from 10 am to 4 pm will include presentations by noted Hopi authorities. The expo will include presentations and demonstrations from groups that will provide a look into Hopi Agriculture and give insight into the significance agriculture has in Hopi culture and history. The day will include dance performances, a sampling of traditional Hopi foods, and an opportunity to meet and interact with all presenters.
