FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. - A broad, scenic valley with red mesas and an expansive blue sky is home to the A:shiwi, or Zuni people. This ancient and proud people live at Zuni Pueblo where their ancestors have lived for thousands of years. Zuni Pueblo is about 200 miles east of Flagstaff and about 150 miles west of Albuquerque at an historic crossroads of travel and trade. On Saturday and Sunday, May 24 and 25, the 18th Annual Zuni Festival of Arts and Culture at the Museum of Northern Arizona (MNA) in Flagstaff will explore A:shiwi philosophy, emergence and migration beliefs, worldviews, values, and current day issues on the Zuni Indian Reservation.
