For the October program, I will be driving from the Phoenix area and would be happy to carpool if anyone cares to join me. I will have room for three people.

I am going on the September 29 trip. I am flying into Albuquerque and then driving from there. Is anyone interested in driving to Second Mesa and back to Albuquerque with me?

My husband and I are going April 21 - 26 2013...just wondering if any other members of this trip are on this discussion board...

James Burkstrand Apr 16, 2012 at 10:27 PM

I'd like to know if there are any restrictions on photography.

Road Scholar Apr 20, 2012 at 05:56 PM

Yes, in general you do not take photos of people without first asking permission. For landscape, generally fine, but the check with Coordinator if they are in a public location first.
James Burkstrand Apr 22, 2012 at 08:26 AM

I practice the first wrt people. However, the details are important to me and I'd like to understand the local practice , custom, and expectation before I go. How do I contact the coordinator?

When I have visited the Hopi reservation in the past, no photography was allowed in the villages. I'm going on the April 2013 trip and was thinking there was no point in taking my camera. I would really like to understand what is and is not allowed. Can the trip coordinator post specific guidelines and rules please? Or can someone who took this program previously enlighten those about to go?
Dorothy Schwartz Apr 12, 2013 at 02:38 PM

I am going on the September trip. I'm looking forward to hearing from those who have been, or who are going on the Sept. trip.

On the Hopi Cultural Center website there is a statement about visitor etiquette: "Photography, sketching, and recordings are not allowed and will result in the loss of your equipment, cell phones, or other electronic devices. Please leave all of these items in your vehicle." I emailed NAU Road Scholar and received the following info: "You will be allowed to take photos on the grounds of the Hopi Cultural Center, during the demonstrations and at the Dawa Park petroglyphs You can take photos from inside the van - just ask the coordinator if there are any other times/places where photos/video are okay." I also asked that they post this to their to the information about this particular program.
