The S’edav Va’aki Museum Foundation presents the 46th Annual Indian Market at S’edav Va’aki Museum. The S’edav Va’aki Indian Market will take place on Saturday, December 9 & Sunday, December 10, 2023, from 9am – 4pm. Cost: $5 (entrance to museum included) and the market is free to Indigenous peoples, military personnel (active and retired), S’edav Va’aki Museum Foundation members, children twelve and below, and police and fire.
We look forward to showcasing some of Arizona’s and the region’s finest Native American artists at this curated event. In addition to over 100 artisan booths the market will feature traditional Native American performances, ancestral demonstrations, and Native foods. The entire museum and park are open to the public during this event with price of admission.
The event is family friendly featuring the Ki:Hiim (O’odham word for village) where visitors can engage in many hands-on activities. Some of these activities are especially suited to children of all ages. These include learning how to use an authentic bow and arrow and an atlatl to throw spears, creating a clay pot, making a beaded bracelet, incising a petroglyph, making paper masks, painting miniature gourds, learning how to hoop dance, and so much more. Visitors will also be able to watch piki bread being made and taste it when it’s finished. They will also be able to taste cooked tepary beans and juices made from native fruits.
Please Note: There is no ATM or check-cashing on site. Dogs (except for service animals) and firearms are not allowed. The S’edav Va’aki Museum and the Indian Market are wheelchair-accessible.
