“A window to a mystical culture.”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

Wally is a Navajo grandfather and former US Marine. He created this display to keep the culture alive. You can get a demonstration on Navajo rug weaving, native dances, native lifestyles and traditions, and Navajo tacos made by Navajos! This is a wonderful cultural experience from the Dine point of view.

“A learning experience”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

Frankly, I thought this was one of the more "commercial" parts of our visit - I don't know the fees as it was part of our tour. We shared a dinner outside during the hoop dance. The dinner was cold and not very tasty. The elder lectured quite a long time, even though our group was getting "antsy" - I felt he was a bit disingenuous and a few time he mentioned some famous sports people with whom he'd rubbed elbows. The young girl who talked about the rug weaving was interesting but the loom was broken so demo wasn't totally effective. The elder's wife was lovely and the tour of the Hogan's was interesting. We all learned things that we mentioned later on the trip, so I suppose it was worthwhile but if I had to leave something off my tour, this would have been it. BTW, bathroom is a port-a-potty.

“A local guide trying to keep tradition alive.”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

The grandparents, grandson (day off from school) and their nephew present a realistic appraisal of their culture for our times. Insightful and pleasant. The grandfather is the more relaxed of the group. The grandson's hoop dance is not to be missed. Remember to offer tips with requests for pictures, or you'll be reminded.

“View of the Navajo Dine”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

It won't take you long, traveling through this region to see there is a historical mixture of traditions, white and indian. Some families on either side hold fast to thier own traditions, and some have mixed the traditions within their families. The family that started the Navajo Village Heritage Center is such a family. Coming from a background in education, Wally Brown has tried to create an experience of the Dine for his family to hold on to and you to learn about. By reservation only, it is well worth it.

If you go during the day then you can take pictures of the huts otherwise everything happens at night. There is a small gift store above the general store there.
