Adopt-A-Native Elder Navajo Rug Show and Sale

Adopt-A-Native Elder presents the 18th Annual Navajo Rug Show and Sale, November 9 - 11, 2007 at Snow Park Lodge in Deer Valley. This year’s theme is A Mother’s Legacy, The Male Weavers and will feature the extraordinary work of many top male weavers. The show provides visitors a unique opportunity to learn more about the Native American culture, witness traditional ceremonies and meet Navajo elders and their families who travel from their homeland for the show.

The Navajo Rug Show and Sale is an annual event organized and staffed by volunteers and funded by gifts, grants and charitable contributions. This generous support makes it possible for the Native American artists and weavers exhibiting at the show to keep 100% of the proceeds from their sales.

The Adopt-A-Native-Elder Program is a non-profit, humanitarian organization providing health and sustenance support including food, clothing, heating fuel, and medical supplies to traditional Navajo elders living on the reservation.
