Native Americans Tips (5)

Monument Valley

Monument Valley is part of everybody's memories. To Be there it's diving in your imagination, a sort of reincarnation in a past, where only the vehicles awake you to the reality of the present.

Lucky Indians, those who can live a decent life sharing (at a price!) those marvels with the tourists! But what about the others, surviving in those dry, nude and hostile lands? What do they do? How do they live?

Cameron Trading post

About 30 min before you get to GC from the east is an amazing place called Cameron Trading Post. They have a beautiful motel, a wonderful restaurant, a huge trading post full of native artwork and souveniers, an art gallerey a service station, etc. I would highly reccommend this place to stay overnight(very reasonable prices) or just stop to enjoy their Native American food (try their amazing frybread). Be sure to leave enough time to see everything in the trading post. Take a look at camerontradingpost.com

If you leave the South Rim...

If you leave the South Rim towards the East, you´ll enter Navajo Indian Reservation. Lots of traders offer their hand-made goods next to the streets, and there are trading posts ('Friendly Indians!' a sign said, I remember that one well). Within Navajo Reservation is Hopi Reservation on the Mesas. They are worth a visit, too - if only to learn how man can survive in a barren landscape.

This sauna/hot bath was located just off the trail between Havasupai Village and the Havasu Falls.

The local Indians build a fire to heat up some large rocks. They then put the rocks inside the mud/dirt sauna and place sage on top.

After they are sufficiently warmed up, they jump into the nearby river to cool down.
