Grand Canyon 4

A Future of the Colorado Plateau Forum: Indigenous Voices for Grand Canyon's Next Century
September 12, 6:00 pm-8:00 pm

Grand Canyon National Park’s centennial anniversary offers opportunities for indigenous communities to reflect on the park’s first 100 years and to consider new ways for tribes, federal agencies, local governments, businesses, teachers, artists, and others to work together in shaping the future of the entire Grand Canyon region. Participants who've been engaged in that intertribal conversation for nearly two years will present individual views about Grand Canyon's past, present and future. This forum will bring the conversation forward for the first time to the general public. We want to hear from you!
