ROUTE 66
Hopi Indian Reservation

The Hopi people built Old Oraibi, believed to be the oldest continuously inhabited settlement in the US, as early as 1150AD. The reservation consists primarily of three mesas (flat mountains) rising above low altitude deserts.

The mesas, home of the villagers, provided protection from invading Navajo and Apache Indians. Hopi land provides an opportunity to explore the colorful rock formations of the mesas and buttes. Many of the ruins of past villages are closed to the public to protect their contents.

The Hopi are religious people, and celebrate their religion through several ceremonies during the year. Snake dances and flute ceremonies are closed to the public. Ten of twelve villages have closed their Kachina dances to all non-Indians. Some social dances remain open.

Photography is prohibited throughout the reservation, especially within the villages.

The Hopi Reservation is accessible from Route 66 (Interstate 40) in Holbrook, Winslow, and Flagstaff Arizona.

Major events held:


The tribe is noted for fine overlay jewelry, Kachinas, basketry, and pottery.
