Gateway to Native American Experience
Gallup lies in the heart of Native American ancestral homelands.
With the Navajo National at their doorstep, Zuni Pueblo to the South, and the Hopi Reservation nearby in Arizona, Gallup is truly the gateway to the Native American experience.
A short drive from Gallup will immerse you in a wide variety of ventures including visiting National, State and Navajo Parks, the Navajo Nation, Zuni Pueblo and Hopi Reservation. Here you can see the impact and influence of the Ancestral Peoples on the land and culture from the distant past to the present day.
Gallup is also home to three major annual events that showcase and celebrate Native American arts and culture: the annual Gallup Inter-tribal Indian Ceremonial, the Gallup Native Arts Market, and the Summer Nightly Indian Dances.
