Retrace the migration of the ancestral Pueblo cultures across Arizona on the Kayenta & Hohokam program. There are some physical requirements associated with this trip. Please read below to learn more:
Throughout the journey, you may be hiking up to two miles per day on uneven, rocky, and un-established trails to visit rural communities and archaeological sites. Some trails may be impeded by boulders so you should be comfortable using your hands to steady yourself and be able to take steps higher than a standard staircase step. There will also be long periods of standing while visiting sites and entering discussions with scholars and peers. During the trip, you may be visiting remote locations with limited amenities. There is the possibility of stopping at gas stations for bathroom stops. The elevation during the trip will be above 7000 ft. We recommend ramping up your exercise regime prior to arrival or arriving a day or two in advance to acclimate, especially if coming from sea level. If you are concerned about your ability to do any of these activities, please consult your physician.
Tuition is per person and based on shared accommodations. Tuition includes scholar honorarium, accommodations, meals listed, entry fees and permits, most gratuities, and transportation from arrival in Phoenix, Arizona, on October 23, 2018, until departure from Phoenix on October 29, 2018. Transportation to and from Phoenix is your responsibility.
