Perhaps the best way to gain appreciation for the lifestyles, history and culture of the O'odham (Pima) and Piipaash (Maricopa) tribes is to begin your visit to the community at the Huhugam Ki Museum, 10005 E. Osborn Road.
Huhugam Ki, meaning "House of the ancestors," describes the museum, which is constructed of adobe and desert plants, reflecting the beauty of the Southwest. Inside you will view exhibits that share the unique heritage, from the days of the ancient Hohokam to the achievements of today. Baskets, pottery, photos and other articles create an understanding of a people who are enriched by the strength of their ancestors.
If your timing is right, you might see a demonstration of Pima basketry or Maricopa pottery in progress, or a special sample of traditional foods.
Museum Hours (Call ahead for guided tours)
Monday-Friday 9:30 am - 4:30 pm
