MNA brims with Navajo culture, art, activities<br>

FLAGSTAFF — Artists, dancers, musicians, activities, and food from Navajoland—or “Diné Bikéyah” as the Navajo say—arrive in Flagstaff on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 7 and 8 for the 55th annual Navajo Marketplace at the Museum of Northern Arizona.

More than 50 artists representing today’s 250,000 Diné bring their fine art skills in painting, textiles, basketry, silverwork, pottery, and folk art to the marketplace. A collection of Navajo rugs provided by traders and trading posts throughout the Colorado Plateau also will be on display and for sale in MNA’s Fine Arts Gallery.
