Navajo Storytelling and Songs
Every Thursday night through Nov. 1, Eli Secody shares his knowledge of his native culture and harmonious living within the region, its wildlife and the land. Growing up in the Navajo Nation and listening to stories and folklore passed down by tribe elders through the ages makes Secody’s stories deeply rooted in the tradition of Indigenous people. He incorporates Navajo songs and drumming into his stories, leaving guests with an enlightened experience of Navajo culture.
Every Wednesday through Nov. 1, Pearl Seaton guides guests through an intimate one-hour class to learn to weave traditional Navajo dreamcatchers. Guests learn the purpose and meaning of dream catchers and hear firsthand stories from Seaton’s childhood and memories of her grandparents teaching her how to make the craft.
Every Saturday until Oct. 28, guests can create their own one-of-a-kind candles with custom scents in a workshop led by Ian Klay of Klays Essentials Creations. Candles are made from premium-grade soy wax blend and high-quality fragrance oils to enhance the air quality in any space where they’re burned.
