Native Trails presented by the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation

Every January through March the Scottsdale Civic Center Mall, just north of the Scottsdale Center for the Arts, comes alive with Native American music, dance, art and traditional foods.

In January 2007, Native Trails presented by the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation and produced by the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts, will debut its fourth season of free noontime festivals dedicated to exploring the rich and varied cultures of Native America. We invite you to come along on this sensory journey to the first nations of Arizona and North America. New to the event this year will be culinary demonstrations each Saturday. Local chefs and purveyors will demonstrate the use of ingredients that are native to Arizona in traditional Native American foods as well as in contemporary cuisine.
As an example, Lance Poulingyama from the Hyatt is scheduled to give a demonstration on the foods grown in the Native Seed Garden at the Hyatt and how they are used in the kitchens at their property. Musical performances using traditional instruments such as flutes, gourds and drums will delight your ears. A variety of tribal dances ranging from powwow dancing and fancy dance to the excitement and energy of the traditional hoop dance will amaze your eyes. And the rhythmic drumbeat in your chest as you join the performers for a traditional round dance will energize your spirit!

Address: Scottsdale Civic Center Mall
