Huhugam Heritage Center


This modern cultural center highlights the ancestral, historic and current cultures of the Gila River Indian Community, made up of two tribes – the Akimel O’otham and the Pee Posh. Our mission is to ensure our Akimel O’otham and Pee Posh cultures flourish for future generations.

In the Ancestral Lands exhibit see the master work of our Huhugam ancestors pottery, jewelry, carved stone bowls and tools. A basket exhibit featuring baskets from the Breazeale Basket collection and Pee Posh pottery from the collections are also on view. Don’t miss the Veterans exhibit in the Archives reading room which was 100% curated by our Community Veterans.

In the Great House artist gallery we feature a new Community artist every 3 months. Special shows also open throughout the year.
