PROGRAM DETAILS

Gather at the Great Kiva as sunset approaches to hear about Native American culture, history and stories.  Afterwards, guests return to the parking lot to enjoy the sunset.  Bring a blanket or camp chair for comfort, a light jacket, and a flashlight to light your way back to your vehicle after sunset.

Parents must closely supervise their children for the safety of all attendees.   No food is allowed on the Mesa Village Trail to the Great Kiva; guests may bring their own water.  Families can arrive early and bring a picnic dinner to enjoy near our visitors’ cabin before driving up to the upper parking lot when instructed, where the Mesa Village Trail begins.
