A portion of the profits from each Native American Market weekend event at Hopi Travel Plaza in Holbrook was donated to local schools in both the city of Holbrook and on the Hopi Reservation to support and assist student learning.

The Hopi Travel Plaza is a subsidiary of Hopi Tribe's Economic Development Corporation (HTEDC) headquartered in Flagstaff. The group organized a Native American Market featuring genuine Native art, Native food vendors and Hopi social dancing this past summer from May to August for passing visitors and local Holbrook area community members.

Representatives from several of the local Hopi schools as well as Hulet School in Holbrook received school supplies made from a "wish list" generated by students.

Hopi Mission School, First Mesa Day School, Second Mesa Day School, Hotevilla-Bacavi Community School and Moencopi Day School, all reservation schools, received supplies.

Student representatives from the various schools, Hopi tribal officials and members of the HTEDC administration were on hand to receive these donated school supplies.

Due to the success of its weekend Native American Market, HTEDC officials hope to make these school donations annually.

Lisa Talayumptewa of the HTEDC offices in Flagstaff coordinates the Native American Market (NAM). The market is run onsite by Hopi Travel Plaza staff, including manager Kelly Jarvis.

The Hopi Travel Plaza is located just off of Interstate 40, Exit 292, and features both diesel and gasoline islands, a convenience store, a Knife City outlet, Burger King, Tribal Rocks Gift Shop and a full service restaurant. More information about school donations is available from Kelly Jarvis, Travel Plaza manager, (928) 524-6243.
