MSN Travel/UK

touts the famed and tradition-

al Scottsdale Thursday evening ArtWalk as

one of the 10 best walks in the world for a

cultural fix.

The most popular of the renowned Scottsdale

ArtWalk is the American Indian ArtWalk. At

the center of it all is

River Trading Post

which is the crown jewel of the American

Indian ArtWalk, having inspired the event

over 10 years ago with the heart throbbing

beat of Hopi drums and singers and the pre-

view of works to be shown at the annual

Heard Museum Indian Art Market which

follows.

8 years ago,

River Trading Post

relocated

from an historic old house on Scottsdale’s 1st

Avenue to a stunning new location right in the

heart of Scottsdale’s Main Street Arts District.

During one of Scottsdale’s traditional Thurs-

day ArtWalks, in early March, we literally

jolted the quiet dignity of the ArtWalk by

replacing the soothing live music with the beat

of Indian drums and singers that could be

heard for miles around.

We featured the very top American Indian

artists, had some of our Navajo friends set up

shop to serve fry bread and Navajo tacos for

our guests to enjoy, and raised the eyebrows

of everyone in the Scottsdale Arts District.

The Beat Goes On

The rest, as they say, is history.

The great artists, the heart-pounding Hopi

drums and singers and the awesome (and

fattening) Navajo fry bread has made the

River Trading Post

event the centerpiece

of Scottsdale’s largest annual ArtWalk.

The

River Trading Post

2015 event begins

on Thursday, March 5 at 6 pm and contin-

ues through closing time (whatever time

that may be.) World class artists, booming

drumming and singing, and of course

Navajo fry bread will be a part of this great,

and traditional, annual Scottsdale event.

The artist show and sale will continue

through Saturday, March 7.

When you visit

River Trading Post

,

Scottsdale, you will have the opportunity to

visit with the finest, and most renowned

American Indian artists today, and to get

first choice of acquiring great work before

the Heard Indian Market. You will enjoy

the great diversity in American Indian Art

from the creation of wampum and jewelry

to sculpture and Navajo weaving.

On March 5, you will also enjoy the bounty

of Navajo tacos and fry bread, and the

sounds of Hopi drums and singers.
