The Rug Show helps Adopt-A-Native-Elder create a market for the Elders’ crafts and raise awareness about the Elders’ needs. The Elders bring rugs, jewelry, and baskets to sell. They return home with all the proceeds from their sales. The money enables them to buy food, firewood, and hay during the winter.

28th ANNUAL SHOW NOVEMBER 10 - 12, 2017
Our rug show this year celebrates the 28 year history of this event. Over the years we have provided an important economic support for the Elders in our program and their families. In addition the show has been a major source of information for the general public about the Navajo culture and people.
Each year we ask our weavers to produce special rugs for the show. This year they have been weaving rugs in the Teec Nos Pos style. Three of these exquisite rugs are shown above.
The show will once again be held at the beautiful Snow Park Lodge at Deer Valley in Park City, UT.
