Our auctions have become our biggest fund raising events and they enable us to, in part, support our scholarship
program, support the park in its endeavors, and to fund other special events; but the main purpose of each auction
is to provide economic assistance to the artists and community. In the many years that the Friends group has run the auction,
we have returned over $2,000,000 to the local communities through the artists who consign items into the auction.
The FoH auctions are held in May and September. We spend the week before the auction accepting items from
Native American artists including Navajo, Hopi, and other puebloan tribes. Generally we have 400+ items that are sold.
The auction has been called the best kept secret in Arizona but we still attract bidders from both coasts and all over the
Southwest because of the exceptional value and authenticity of the auction items.
Our next auctions are scheduled for:

May 3 and September 13, 2014


Preview is from 9:00 AM-11:00 AM and the auction will start at 12:00 noon and go until all items are offered to the bidders.
Remember that the Navajo Reservation will be on daylight saving time.

Our off site auctions will be held on:

February 8, 2014 at the DoubleTree Inn, 5401 Scottsdale Rd. , Paradise Valley AZ 85250
February 22, 2014 at the Arizona State Museum, Tucson, AZ
