White Mountain Apache Cultural Center
Sep 2019
The Cultural Center is still in use today. The whole area is worth seeing. There is a lot of information available to review at the museum.

I come here to get my materials for a buckskin dress, books, and just to look around. The employees are knowledgeable and helpful.

To learn more about Apache history, culture and traditions
Sep 2017
We had a wonderful time visiting the WMA cultural centre. Lots of information, great display, recorded statements. The centre also has a very good choice of books about the Apache history and language. There are some bilingual books (and dictionaries) to learn Western Apache especially a bilingual reader in Ndee Biyati'i (Western Apache) and English called 'Our Village' when Apache students drew and painted scenes of their daily lives in the late 1930s/1940s. A great place to visit!

Great Historical Buildings

We did the complete tour and we loved it. We even watched the videos inside the museum. The old fort, dormitories for the "Indian" girls and school were breath taking to view. We were disappointed that we couldn't tour all the historical homes.

Great Experience
Jun 2016
So much culture, history, and natural beauty in one stop. I loved looking at the Apache artifacts and reading about their culture. This is such a unique place and it is well preserved. Make sure you stop in at the resteraunt. It's worth it!

Drove through Show Low on the way to Fort Apache and drove out through Salt River Canyon
May 2015
All beautiful places although Show Low is highly urbanized. Fort Apache Cultural Center is nicely done, and the Fort buildings area is a nice walking area (although easily accessed via auto).

I love Whiteriver! The people are friendly, if you take time to get to know them!

I have to say upfront that I haven't been to Whiteriver since. 1983! I worked as a nurse at the Indian Hospital there. I loved it and made some very good friends whom I still communicate with. I am planning to visit this year (2015) to see my friends and to see how Whiteriver has changed--or not! The countryside is beautiful--I can remember holding a beautiful Apache baby in my arms and looking out the window at the beautiful yellow flowers that covered the hillsides. I lived in the government housing, but as I got to know some ladies I worked with, they took me on some tours to Cibecue etc. I ate breakfast at the hotel. My husband walked to the post office many days and met a relative of Alchesay. I only wish I could have stayed there longer. My husband couldn't get work there because the few jobs available other than medical were open only to Apache Indians. I think that was proper. It is their home, their reservation and they should get the jobs. I am very excited to go back and renew friendships and see Whiteriver once again.
