More about San Carlos Apache Cultural Center

Museums/Heritage Resources

The San Carlos Apache Cultural Center exhibits a window into the tribe's culture and history. The center is the first one of its kind on the San Carlos Reservation and it allows the tribe to tell its story from the Apache perspective.

In the exhibit, visitors will learn about the spiritual beginnings of the people, of the Mountain Spirit Dancers (Ga'an) and of the beautiful changing woman ceremony, known today as the Sunrise Ceremony.

Visitors will learn of the Apaches' cultural legacy and about the forced confinement of the people on the reservation. There are also information and displays about the tribe today and its vision for the future.

The center features the works of many Apache artists and craftspeople. Beautiful necklaces of peridot, hand-made dolls and intricately woven baskets accent the gift shop, along with beadwork, moccasins and Apache music. The gift shop also has T-shirts, postcards, books and other reservation memorabilia.

The San Carlos Apache Cultural Center is located in Peridot, at mileage marker 272, on Highway 70 between Globe and Safford. It is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free to tribal members and $3 for other adults. Students and seniors pay $1 and children under 12 are admitted free.
