The customs, culture, ceremonies, and mesas of Hopi are world renowned. For Hopi Villages, this presents an opportunity for tourism development.
In November 2020, Building Communities completed and distributed the Hopi Tourism Strategic Plan which offers recommendations and policies on how tourism development can benefit the Tribe and its people.
Beginning in June 2019, the Hopi Tourism Cohort was formed to guidethe development of the Hopi Tourism Strategic Plan (completed) and the implementation of that plan(underway).
Today, a new Hopi tourism non-profit organization is being formed, a tourism website will be developed, the Hopi tour operators guide will be updated, and future development sites for tourism facilities will be identified.
“The Mission of the Hopi Tourism Association is to promote tourism activities and visitor destinations that Promote, Preserve and Reinforce Hopi Customs and Values as a business approach to economic diversification; through the development and operation of an authentic Hopi experience and destination by cooperative marketing of Hopi attractions; participating in local, state, and national tourism advocacy and networking in a regional context.”
