Historic Photo Exhibit

Visitors to the Moenkopi Legacy Inn & Suites can enjoy a unique photo exhibit that depicts Hopi life and agricultural practices from the late 1800s to the early 1900s. The exhibit features 18 images that were selected not only for their value in imagery, but were also selected because they have not been used in any other collection, book, brochure, or website. These images provide a historic glimpse into the life of the Hopi people so when you have completed your viewing, you will come away with a stronger sense of Hopi history, culture, and our people. The exhibit will be on permanent display in the Conference Center area.

Special thanks to these prestigious museums for granting use of these images for public display: Braun Research Library Collection at the Autry National Center, Los Angeles, CA; Sharlot Hall Museum, Prescott, AZ; the Palace of the Governors, Santa Fe, NM; the Milwaukee Public Museum, Milwaukee, WI; and the Cline Library Special Collections and Archives, Northern Arizona University, Flagstaff, AZ.

The Moenkopi Developers Corporation has dedicated this photo exhibit to creating awareness of the Hopi culture as it was in the recent past and today.
