The following photo gallery contains images from the 2009 Hopi Festival of Arts and Culture held at the Museum of Northern Arizona (MNA) over the Fourth of July weekend. This was the 76th annual festival and is part of the MNA's ongoing Heritage Program. The four festivals that are part of the Heritage Program highlight the region's cultures and encourages communication and exchange of ideas between visitors, educators, and artists. Art, music, performances, and presentations combine to create cultural understanding and a forum for dialogue. All photos by Rosanda Suetopka Thayer/NHO.
