The program gave such an insight into the Hopi culture, past and present. Leader Ray Coin, a Hopi himself, shared so much of his own memories of growing up and the traditions.

This program is amazing. Ray Coin was exceptional. His knowledge of Hopi history and culture enriched us all. Ray's warmth was contagious and allowed for the group to bond. The guest speakers that we had were entertaining and demonstrated their crafts with professionalism. I would enjoy having Ray Coin lead other programs into Canyon de Chelly and Chaco Canyon, etc.

Wonderful, wonderful! This was an in depth look at the Hopi culture and their land. The people we met were warm and welcoming. The program leader, Ray Coin was so open with sharing his experiences. The guest speakers demonstrated their areas of expertise in a conversational manner. I loved it!

The Life and Land of the Hopi was wonderful from start to finish. It gave me an appreciation for Hopi culture and left me wanting to go back and learn more. Ray Coin, the leader, is excellent both in the material he presented and in bringing in other instructors and in overall organization. The Hopi Cultural Center Motel is comfortable and staff are pleasant, and there is an informative museum on site. Photos are allowed during presentations but not when visiting the ancient pueblos.
