Yellow Bird Apache Dancers at Heritage Days / Apacheland Days

 Big plans are in the works for the major weekend event in January to be known as “Superstition Mountain Heritage Days” (January 19, and 20, 2013)  The focus of this exciting event will be a celebration of that which has emanated from the Superstition Mountains, some of which had prehistoric origins, much more dating from the past few centuries and a great deal that comes from “modern” times.

See what the best dressed ranchers wife wore in the 1880’s. A family, the saloon girls, the shop owners, a proper gentleman and the proper madam.  All will be showing authentic 1880’s attire.  Please join us at 10:15a.m. on Saturday and Sunday.  Learn about the language of the fan.

Apacheland Remembered

We will remember Apacheland and have Apacheland Alumi participating in our event signing books and autographs. Apacheland Movie Ranch was an important part of the history of the Superstition Mountain area.

This celebration will help to recap our history for the benefit of local residents, as well as those who come here as visitors from all over the country and, in fact the world.

Just a few of the exhibits, special events, and demonstrations will include representatives of the Apache, Hopi, and Navajo Nations.  We will have Native American Art, Jewelry, Folk Art, and Basketry.
