places in the Valley of the Sun for a true Native American experience
Travel + Leisure
About River Trading Post, the magazine says, “
White oak floors, a
pressed-tin ceiling and lots of natural light help this modern shop selling Na-
tive American artwork and artifacts avoid the tourist-trap feel of similar stores
in Scottsdale. You’ll find pottery and baskets, Navajo textiles and Hopi Ka-
china, as well as an extensive jewelry collection with new and vintage pieces,
set with natural minerals like turquoise and coral.”
River Trading Post enjoys great company, and is pleased to be in-
cluded with other world-class venues for a true Native American ex-
perience. They include:
, the premier center for learning about Native
American culture, and the site for one of the most prestigious
American Indian art fairs in the country.
Pueblo Grande Museum and Archaeological Park
chronicles the ancient Hohokam people, and includes a Hohokam ruin.
a five star, five diamond restaurant featuring Native American cuisine. “Kai” means
seed in the Pima language.
Deer Valley Rock Art Center
, a 47-acre park in Northwest Phoenix that preserves some
1,500 petroglyphs, ranging from abstract symbols and shapes to animal and human
Scottsdale is home to many fine Native American art galleries, and it is a special honor to be the

experiences in town.
