All tour itineraries become complete when adding a little shopping to the mix. From native to creative, shopping venues provide a variety of experiences for every traveler.
When visiting Native American trading posts, which have been in existence since the mid-1800s, groups are not just told about the people, their traditions and the history of the posts – they experience it, thus bringing the works of art to life. The fine weavings, baskets, jewelry, beadwork and kachina dolls develop a personal meaning for the shopper. Serving a dual purpose, trading posts have changed very little since the beginning as they continue to facilitate communication on governmental and everyday matters for the Native people.
Additionally, on any given weekend, groups can find arts and crafts festivals throughout North America that feature handcrafted items by regional artisans and select imports. Adding local food options and entertainment to the shopping experience makes for a fun-filled day.
