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 (1-- 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 weekends.Reno Gazette Journal. Keywords:
