This is the home of a Boy Scout Troop, that perform Native American dances. One of the few places that have been given permission by the tribes that they represent.

Exhibits were displayed quite nicely and information was good. They do offer traditional dancing on select days. It would be great for anyone and especially good for history buffs

It seems like most of these reviews are all about the "kiva" and the Boy Scouts who do dances. We weren't impressed by the "kiva" and we didn't care to see the dancing. There are perhaps many tourists who are unaware that kivas are sacred...More

The dance show is put on by a Boy Scout troop, with some venture scout girls, doing native dance. They do a nice job. We were there with our Boy Scout troop and they kindly announced us and encouraged the boys. But it's somewhat misleading...More
