We are located just east of the intersection of Hwy 87 and Hwy 264
in northern Arizona in an area called First Mesa. The Hopi people
settled into this land in the area where three mesas stand side by
side, dotted with quaint reservation villages scattered throughout
the three mesas. Each mesa and each village has its own history and
a surprising variation in traditions. The village of Polacca has a
convenience store with an ATM, a post office (zip code 86042), as
well as a few other small stores, mostly selling arts and crafts.
The village of Keams Canyon, approximately 11 miles to the east,
has a small grocery store/restaurant/trading post, a post office, a
gas station, and a few small stores. Larger towns such as
Flagstaff, AZ (2 hour drive), Winslow, AZ (1 hour drive), Gallup,
NM (1½ hour drive), and Dilkon, AZ (45 minutes drive) offer a wider
selection of shopping and entertainment. The Southwest region has
many other attractions such as hiking, camping, mountain biking,
rafting/canoeing, fishing, skiing/snowboarding, and dozens of state
and national parks in the surrounding Arizona, Utah, New Mexico and
Colorado areas. While many of these activities are a bit of a drive
(between 1-5 hours for most), there are often local groups
traveling from the reservation to the cities or on outdoor
adventure trips on the weekends.
