PHOENIX — After a two-year break due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Heritage Days is returning to the North Rim within Grand Canyon National Park in August.

The programs will run on Aug. 5-7 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. across various locations in the developed North Rim area, according to a press release.

Visitors can view special programs offered by tribal members on a variety of subjects, ranging from the night sky to dance performances, while experiencing and celebrating the cultural diversity of the Colorado Plateau, Arizona Strip and the Grand Canyon Area.

A list of event activities with times and locations can be found at the North Rim Visitor Center.

Grand Canyon Conservancy, Aramark Resorts and Pipe Springs National Monument are supporting the event.

There are 11 traditionally associated tribes of Grand canyon, which include Havasupai Tribe, Hope Tribe, Kaibab Band of Paiute Indians and Pueblo of Zini.

We want to hear from you.
