Wild Food Adventure is a six-day culinary experience like no other, as participants will learn about the edible wild plants with some of the top chefs working in the Southwest today. You'll have the opportunity to learn about traditional indigenous cuisine with our group of scholars who each teach a variety of ways to sustain health while deeply connecting with the Southwest landscape and culture. You'll also have the rare opportunity to witness Feast Day ceremonies at northern New Mexico's Picuris Pueblo, including traditional dances and a pole climb.

Zuni Migrations is a seven-day journey through the exotic landscapes of Arizona and New Mexico. You'll learn about indigenous migrations from approximately A.D. 1080 to 1250 through rock art and ancient architecture. You'll explore archaeological and historic sites near Zuni Pueblo—including some that are usually off-limits to most travelers—that reveal stories about clans settling in what is known as the “Middle Place” in Zuni cosmology.

Kayenta and Hohokam Connections is a seven-day exploration of the ancient migration route used by Pueblo cultures of the Four Corners region to the Hohokam areas of what are today Phoenix and Tucson in southern Arizona.
