There’s a new exhibit at the Museum of Northern Arizona in Flagstaff—actually, it’s an old exhibit re-imagined. Native Peoples of the Colorado Plateau originally opened in 1980. It was an expansive look at many of the region’s tribal cultures including the Havasupai, Navajo and Hopi. The museum recently unveiled a total makeover of the exhibit, nearly a decade in the making.
