Hopi High School Students to Visit ASM

AAHS along with the Arizona State Museum (ASM) and the Hopi Cultural Preservation Office is sponsoring a June trip for 12 high school students from Hopi to visit the several Hopi-related exhibits currently at ASM, as well as tour the U of A Tree Ring Laboraroy and the Biosphere. Students will also interact with their contemporaries from the Tohono O’odham including visiting the San Xavier Farm Co-Op and having a cultural food exchange by cooking and eating traditional recipes with the Tohono O’odham students and community members. The goal of the trip is to expose students to a variety of professions and disciplines to expand their horizons and spark interest in potential careers.
