Adopt-A-Native-Elder Navajo Rug Show & Sale

Our Annual Rug Show & Sale is the only event of it’s kind in the world supporting traditional Navajo Elders. Every November Adopt-A-Native-Elder takes over the Snow Park Lodge at Deer Valley Resort in Park City Utah for a five-day show featuring more than 600 of the one of a kind weavings, incredible pieces of native jewelry, crafts, and the amazing culture of the Navajo people.

Our show is unique in many ways, the most important being that it is staffed by more than 200 volunteers, and 100% of all sales go directly to the artists. All the artists set the prices for their weavings and jewelry and take the proceeds home to help support themselves and their families throughout the difficult winter months.

During three days the show there are cultural presentations by the Elders including weaving demonstrations, singing, dancing, and a closing pow-wow before closing on Sunday.

The Elders our program serves are the last generation of traditional indigenous people in the United States. We encourage as many people as possible to come and spend time with the Elders and their families before their culture and traditions are lost to time.
