Humanities in the Wild is an exploratory outdoor experience that empowers participants to step into the landscapes that inspired some of the American West’s greatest literature. Join us at San Juan River and Butler Panels Trail with Hopi guide Bertram Tsavadawa and Craig Childs, Author of Tracing Time: Seasons with Rock Art on the Colorado Plateau. Bring sturdy shoes and some water!

Mr. Bertram Tsavadawa is a guide of the Ancient Pathways Tours. He belongs to the corn clan from the village of Old Oraibi, 3rd Mesa. He wants to share his knowledge and experience, insights into everyday Hopi life ways. He offers unique sightseeing tour both informative and entertaining.

Craig Childs bears witness to rock art of the Colorado Plateau—bighorn sheep pecked behind boulders, tiny spirals in stone, human figures with upraised arms shifting with the desert light, each one a portal to the open mouth of time. With a spirit of generosity, humility, and love of the arid, intricate landscapes of the desert Southwest, Childs sets these ancient communications in context, inviting readers to look and listen deeply.
