We are located just east of the intersection of Hwy 87 and Hwy
264 in northern Arizona in an area called First Mesa. The Hopi
people settled into this land in the area where three mesas stand
side by side, dotted with quaint reservation villages scattered
throughout the three mesas. Each mesa and each village has its own
history and a surprising variation in traditions. The village of
Polacca has a convenience store with an ATM, a post office (zip
code 86042), as well as a few other small stores, mostly selling
arts and crafts. The village of Keams Canyon, approximately 11
miles to the east, has a small grocery store/restaurant/trading
post, a post office, a gas station, and a few small stores. Larger
towns such as Flagstaff, AZ (2 hour drive), Winslow, AZ (1 hour
drive), Gallup, NM (1½ hour drive), and Dilkon, AZ (45 min. drive)
offer a wider selection of shopping and entertainment. The
Southwest region has many other attractions such as hiking,
camping, mountain biking, rafting/canoeing, fishing,
skiing/snowboarding, and dozens of state and national parks in the
surrounding Arizona, Utah, New Mexico and Colorado areas. While
many of these activities are a bit of a drive (between 1-5 hours
for most), there are often local groups traveling from the
reservation to the cities or on outdoor adventure trips on the
